I am a 27 year old, SAHM with a degree in biology education getting ready to rearrange my life for nursing school (Starting this Fall!)! I'm truly excited about my decision; however, I'm tired of reading second hand information on this subject. Please give me your first hand comments and advice by answering my questions - please feel free to add any comments or address issues that I have not addressed.
My main interest in the nursing field is OB (as you may know if you checked out my username).
My questions... What steps do I take to realize this dream? What hurdles will I run into? What can I do to prepare for an OB career? What steps do I take to become a CNM (certified nurse midwife)? What kind of control do OB nurses have (I want responsibility)? Finally, for those with experience is this area, would you tell me about your experiences?
I am also interested in trauma. How do I go about this? Hurdles? Preparation? Responsibility? Your experiences.
I am certain that I have what it takes to complete nursing school; however, I do not know what to expect. How hard is it and why is it hard? (I already have a degree in biology - I'm good at math and science.) What are the challenges, rewards, sacrifices, etc. of nursing school? What are the main things I should look for in a good nursing school?
I truly appreciate the time you've taken to help me with my questions. Thank you for your help!!!
