    I am a mommy of two and I decided to go straight for my BSN. I am so happy I made that decision almost three years ago. Fall 08 I will be starting my senior year. Go for it, you can do it. I'm doing it!!!!

    I am attending MidAmerica Nazarene University. I tried to get into JCCC and KCKCC ADN program but that didn't work out for me. I truly believe it was a blessing in disguise, the reason being, I wanted to later get my master's as a NP and whether waste time with the ADN program I just decided to go straight for the prize. I really enjoy this school because of its warm environment and approachable professors. I plan on going into labor and delivery or mother/baby but I am not writing this in stone because I had a really wonderful experience with telemetry. In the fall we get to choose where we go for one rotation and I have decided to try home health as my first choice. We will see how that work out. Let me know if I can help in any way. :typing
