Know what you really want, and then you have to firmly stick to it. If you really want to be a nurse, be prepared to accept all consequences. Studying is never easy, but it will become a lot easier if you will learn to love what you are doing! Goodluck!

Doing what he did, in part made me the strong woman I am today. So if for nothing else, I have him to thank for that.WOW!!! There's definitely a story there, right? You Go CTPixie!
- 0Dec 18, '12 by jtomsI think I've learned a lot from my high school days. Extraverted in heart, I didn't really care and think much, but I still maintained good grades in school. As I stepped into college, things have changed. Drastic changes that made me think that there are so much things to do besides just making friends and socializing. It could come in any form of commitment.
@classicdame, Balance is one of the values that I'm aiming for, can you give me an example of how you balanced school and personal life?
@monkeybug, What's CRNA? I'm not to familiar with my terms sorry =)
- 1Dec 18, '12 by xxkmpxxPretty much what others said. I didn't take my classes seriously and had to pay more money to retake them later to get a's in them to get into my program. So do your BEST in class!
Volunteering is great, but I would also suggest getting your CNA license and work even part time if you are able to. It's great experience.

When I think of all the money I made, and squandered, I get depressed.
- 1Dec 18, '12 by GrnTeaSave the money, absolutely. I rue the day I took a perfectly good hunk of money out of a retirement account to buy new carpeting thinking I would have lots of time to pay myself back. Gone, gone, gone...and that was decades ago and I could actually retire by now!
Words that fit so many situations: Don't put it off!

Seeing as I just turned 20 about 2 months ago, I would probably still be studying for my Mid-terms for my fourth semester of Nursing school. Keep devoting yourself to your studies. Search for opportunities. Keep volunteering. Enjoy life as much as you can.
