    It's better than "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy".

    I have busted my butt to do well in school. This week are my senior finals and all I can say is sheer willpower is driving me to the finish line! I have enjoyed school, but the last semester has been wearing me down. Seeing the end has been the motivator this year and I am going to make it!

    Jesus motivates me lbs. I can do ALL things through Christ that strengthens me, and that includes making it through and successfully becoming a nurse.

    Well my children and husband motivate me a TON. Also my absolute faith that being a nurse is what God designed me to do and I can't fail at my life's purpose

    My daugher. The thought that one day I won't have to skip meals so she can have all of hers. So by the time she gets into school she won't be the kid in class who gets made fun of because her clothes don't fit right. So she can have all of her needs ( and even some of her wants! ) met.

    I am the first in my family, including aunts, uncles, and cousins, to go to college. My dream is to become the best nurse I can be so as to provide the best care possible. That's all the motivation I need.

    Actualizing my dreams motivates me. Seeing the pride in the eyes of my family motivates me. My employer promising me a sizable raise motivates me. Fear motivated me!

    And I DID IT!

    Nursing is my dream, my passion!! That keeps me going! I just have to keep on, keepin' on... no matter what! Thats what I tell myself. When school is over it will be SO worth it!

    I was just accepted a week ago to a RN prgram after waiting 3+ years... I am elated and terrified all at the same time. I can't wait for the payoff-- to be an RN!
