    I was born & raised in NW Ohio, lived in AL, CA, & NY - Moved back in the 80's and for me, this is home. I love our flatlands, cornfields and "amber waves of grain." I'll probably be a Buckeye until the day I die!

    This is my home, Ohio, love it.

    Okay, so there could be more sunny days and warm weather, but I'm such a homebody. I'm from Lancaster and am looking for others in my area for friendship and advice on the Nursing Field.

    I am 24 years old and have been working for Jenny Craig Weight Management for over a year. I love Nutrition, Promoting Health and Wellness, and Fitness. I have an Associate Degree in Sport and Fitness Management from Columbus State and am now ready to take that next step in my life: return to school so that I can, so call, "better myself." I need some major advice...

    Back in 99, I was in the Nursing program at Hocking Tech. for two quarters. Looking back, whether it was nervousness, self-doubt, immaturity, well, whatever it was, I dropped out. I didn't even give it a chance. I'm at that stage in my life where I know what I enoy: helping others, counseling, nutrition and health, and feel as though Nursing could be a possibility. I feel that my beginnng years in college lead me to Nursing through pressure and of course, being unsure on "what I wanted to do with my life" into the program. My dream back then was to be a labor coach. I feel right now that I'm torn between becoming a Nurse or becoming a Registered Dietician. I'm like the "few" that are "not too sure" about handling blood, smells, and needles, but I think that I am a strong person with a drive to succeed. I feel like I've gotten some message, maybe through God? to keep Nursing an option. But I don't feel that super secure feeling, like "OMG, I wanna do Nursing, no doubt." I am a somewhat insecure person so the thought of jumping back into something I once dropped out of makes me feel uncertain. What do you all think? How did you know you want to make Nursing your career? I feel as though Nursing a secure field with a lot of opportunity. But I love the idea of becoming an RD and felt maybe I could crosstrain into this type of field?

    What are your best feets of advice do you think you could offer?

    Thank you!

    Stacey,

    I learned many years ago to pursue the think you like to do best, because that is where your talent lies, and what you will do the best at. For instance: When I was a child, I loved to drive. Never even giving a thought about being a school bus driver, I said I wanted to be a cab driver when I grew up. When I was 38, I became a schoolbus driver, and loved it. I worked as one for 15 years.

    I also have been ill most of my life, and was cared for by many people. Ambulance corps attendants, nursis aides, nurses, and paramedics. I have always been fascinated with how perfectly our body's organs are pre programmed to work harmoniously with one another, with interdependence via all 10 body systems in order to reach homeostasis. I became an EMT, and leader of our ambulance corps for as many years as I was a xchool bus driver. Then always wanting to learn more about what to do with what I loved most, I became a CPR instructor, and a first aid instructor, and an assistant with the EMT instructor in clinical procedures.

    I moved to PA in 1996, and fulfilled my lifelong dream and love of becoming a nurse. I received a full scholarship, and became an LPN. And now, I am disabled, but I have lived a very fulfilling life, and have done all that I loved to do.

    I hope this answers your question.
