In November, 2007, I thought I would try to change careers and get into nursing school. The application date was June, 2008. I took some pre-reqs that were necessary for consideration - A&P, Micro. A&P II was online. I had to dissect a pig in my kitchen! I applied and made it into a very competitive evening program. Perfect, as I had to work full-time along with school and clinicals.
I graduated with honors this past May, took the NCLEX in June - loved seeing that blue screen after 75 questions.
Applied for a local internship program. Had one interview. I start in two weeks in the Surgical Trauma Unit ICU.
What a great 55th birthday present
BTW, my previous job experience included nothing even remotely related to the healthcare field.
I would never had taken the plunge and changed my career to nursing if not for Brian and this site. Thank you, Brian. Be at peace.
