My name is Danielle and I am a pre-nursing student. I am in my last semester of pre-requsites; I am currently taking Anatomy & Physiology II and Microbiology. Exam week is next week.
I applied for my school's nursing program in March and will find out if I am accepted by the beginning of June. If so, I will begin the program in September. If not, I've registered for Nutrition for the fall and will hopefully be accepted for the Spring (my school does not accept classes in progress, so my application will not be "complete" without the A&P II and Micro).
My Nursing goals are to obtain my RN and specialize in diabetes care/obtain my CDE. I have been an insulin-dependent diabetic for almost 21 years and I feel I have a lot to offer to other diabetics. I would also like to pursue a Master's Degree through an RN to MSN program......maybe after I have a few years of nursing completed.
On a personal level, I have been married to my husband, Del, since June 29, 2002 and we have a son, Alexander, who will be 3 on May 16.
I'm glad to have found this site and hope to get to know you all better.
