Hit By Van,nursing School Delay

  1. :stone In February I was walking to my car after work and was hit by a speeding van. Nothing was broken except my spirit as I was supposed to start an accelerated program in May.
    I am beginning physical therapy this week.Lots of pain and brusing and sprains to contend with.
    I have a B.A. and completed my prereqs ten years ago. Because of this accident I am thinking of finishing the prereqs again and starting the clinicals at a community college next August. I will finish four semesters later. I am 48 now. Do you think it is the wisest road to take at this time due to my circumstances? I do not revel in the idea of chemestry AGAIN but I'm sure things have changed since I last took it. The c.c. is only 20 minutes from my house as opposed to a two hour train ride. I would be most grateful for any and all imput. Thank you.

    Sorry to hear about your accident. Wow! What a bummer.

    As for which nursing program to enter........go for what is doable for you at this time. It sounds as if your recovery is going to take up much of your time for now, so take it easy on yourself until you start to feel stronger.
