embarking on a new journey!

  1. Hello everyone!

    My name is Jen. I am a high school student who will be graduating this spring. I've held an interest in nursing since sophomore year and am currently working on my CNA certification. I am really enjoying clinicals, (and surprisingly for me, lectures too!) I've always had a passion for wanting to help others and my CNA class has developed my interest for the more medical side of things even more. I'm planning to work as a CNA once certified and am SUPER excited about doing so!! After that, I am considering pursing a nursing degree in hopes of becoming an RN (or a musical therapy route - still a lot of exploring to do here.) I will be both the first in my family to pursue college, and a career in the medical world. I will be also new to working an outside-of-home job as a woman as I was raised in a very old fashioned like family where my mother stayed at home and my father worked an outside job. I'm embarking on a journey quite unfamiliar to what I've always known so I've been doing a lot of digging around... As you can tell, I was very excited to find this site! I'm looking forward to learning a lot and hopefully being able to help others once I get enough experience under my belt. (:

    Aside from nursing info, I love to fish, hike, camp, cook, sing, garden, take pictures, play guitar, and spend time with family and friends.

    Anyway, that's my little hello... See you all around!
