Hi! Just wanted to introduce myself. I'm a 33 year old mom of two from Vermont. I currently run an at home daycare. I just applied to nursing school
for this fall, so I'm still in the waiting stage.
I've been working in the childcare field since I was a kid myself. When I was a teenager I worked as a na (didn't have to be certified back then) and loved it - even though it was tough work! I also loved volunteering at a hospital.
Even though I was interested in nursing, my grades were horrible - my 10th grade teacher even laughed when I told her I wanted to be a nurse. So I decided to go into ECE instead since my interest in science really wasn't great.
Now I'm ready to get serious about nursing. I came to this site to try to get a realistic picture of nursing and read all of the horrible nasty stories and I thought - boy do I miss the medical field.
I'm still no science whiz, but this time I am motivated! I've already learned a lot from this board. I look forward to chatting with all of you.
