    Journey Before the Storm - Follow Me Through Grad School Episode 101

    Deciding to go to Grad School is a big decision with lots of planning and choices involved in preparation and organization along the way. In this Vlog I will share with your my journey through Grad School as I strive to achieve my goal of becoming an FNP - from beginning to end.

    Every week I will share a video about my experiences, accomplishments, embarrassments, fears, and tips. I hope you will stay tuned.

    This first video is the beginning of my journey from RN to FNP and details steps before I officially began my FNP journey.

    Some highlights include:

    1 ) Why did I choose Simmons College Online FNP program?

    2 ) Deciding to go to FNP is a big decision, which will require making certain sacrifices. In my case, I literally quit my job, sold most of my belongings and moved down South!

    3 ) Make sure to thoroughly read through your syllabus. Often, there are assignments due even before the first day of class. It wasn't until I looked again at my syllabus that I realized I had a quiz and a group project due before my first class, which was just a few days away.

    4 ) Before starting grad school, it's important to be prepared
    1. Purchase supplies - books, backpack, computer, etc
    2. Books can be expensive! Definitely shop around when purchasing books. Many sites and bookstores offer different deals on the same products
    3. Make sure you have an appropriate computer

    I hope you enjoy this first video.

    Fuel your passion. Fulfill your purpose.

    I didn't watch the video but why did you quit your job and move down south for an online program out of MA? Just curious, no judgment.

    Sorry for the delay in response I thought I responded yesterday from my phone. I chose Simmons because is had the right mix of affordability, flexibility (being online but real time), has 100% pass rate on he first attempt for licensure, and they find clinical placement sites for their students. I moved down south to save on costs by moving in with family, which would enable me to go to school full-time. If I went part time that would have added another 6 months to program, and 6 months definitely feels like a lifetime in grad school (haha)! Thanks for commenting and keep watching!
