While I am not over 40, I am 35, so close enough, right?! Going from accounting field to nursing is a welcome change for me. I couldn't have handled nursing school in my twenties, I had too many things to do and people to see!
Now that I am a little older and wiser and have a child to support, I am much more confident I can handle whatever comes my way! I'm actually paying for my education now, so I know I HAVE to do well!
We've had enough life experiences to realize there are harder things in life than nursing school, right
? I've been through a terrible, terrible divorce:angryfire, had a child born 16 weeks premature
, and a whole host of other things. So, I'm trying to look at it like nursing school is NOTHING compared to what I've already endured! I realize I haven't started yet, but this is how I am going to think of it!
