I always thought I was not "smart" enough to be a nurse, especially because I was not the best at math. After alot of hardwork, perserverance, and determination. I went from CNA to LPN to RN (ADN). I will eventually go back for BSN but right now after all my hard work,I want to enjoy my life-without worring about care plans
, clinicals, exams and all that nursing school entails. I wont say my journey was a cake walk because it was not. Nursing school is tough, emotionally, psychologically, and sometimes physically-i.e lack of sleep stuff like that. I also worked full time through out all of my programs-had bills to pay! The hardest part was getting into a program because the schools were very competitive in my area (with 2 year wait lists for some schools). So If it is really what you want to do, then you have to be determined to overcome all those the elements to reach your dream of becoming a NURSE! Good luck in whatever you decide.
