I really wanted to go back to school (i never really did much education past high school when i was younger) but i always struggled with WHAT i wanted to go back for.
For many years I had people tell me i should become a nurse and i was very hesitant about pursuing it as an education and career path.
I researched different options and different careers i would be interested in but i kept coming back to nursing. i have quite a few friends who are nurses so i spoke with them about what they liked and disliked about their jobs and in the end i decided it was the right path for me to follow.
I'm very excited, and nervous, to start my RPN program in September.
I have two small children and i want to set a good example for them... so i better make sure i keep my grades up!! lol
<3 u Brandon, just trying to see who would bite
Edit to add, plus it's true- I had one B! Just one and i couldn't gain entrance to the ASN program. I still harbor fresh scars / wounds over that... I really gotta stop picking at it or it will never heal.

Quote from BrandonLPN
So why doesn't it result in an "associates of practical nursing"? Why is it still just a certification? Just curious.
It's not a certification, it's a diploma. We have no Associates degrees in Canada I don't think.Even when we used to have 2 year RN programs they were just diplomas, not degrees.
