About Me!!

  1. Hello everyone here in Iowa, I live here in Council Bluffs, and hope to attend IWCC Fall of 04', That is of course if they like me
    I am a mother of 2 (1 & 3) and a wife to 1! After next semester I will only be one class away from a Associates degree in Biology, my first intentions were to do something in research..... However after the birth of my last child I fell in love with nursing, while on maternity leave I searched the WWW to find out exactally what specialties nursing offers (I used to work for a health insurance company doing customer service) While researching I found out that a nurse can be a CRNA!! (EXCITMENT on my part) when I was in high school I wanted to be an anesthesiologist because I loved Chem/Bio anything with science and math, but I didn't want to devote 12 years of my life and $$$(debt) to go to school before making any $$$ so I put that off.... After realizing 10 years later that CRNA's do the work that I actually thought Anesthesiologist do I have started to pursue my dream!! I have all my pre-req's done, my CNA license, all I need is my next 6+ years of nursing education (I hope it doesn't take that long)!!
    But wish me luck.....
    On top of someday becoming a CRNA I'd like to look into travel nursing, so I can go to different countries (France in particular) I love different cultures!!!

    But that's pretty much where I am at now at this point in my life!! I wish everyone luck in the dreams the pursue!!
