After finally submitting my change of major form, I got accepted to the nursing program. My school's program is crazy competitive and very hard to get into, especially if you just finished your A&P (I just finished 2 this spring). Most people have to wait a year or two after completing pre-reqs to get in. And I got in! I'm somewhat in shock right now. I had set my mind on pursuing a history degree and then going to grad school for journalism. The acceptance letter is making me doubt those plans. So now I have a week to decide whether or not to accept the spot. I'm leaning towards yes, but I still have a lot to think about. I'm finishing up my EMT classes in June and I have to figure out how I'm going to work around school in the fall (I have no choice but to work and full time at that since I carry the health insurance). I'm excited and scared and I don't know what to do. I've dreamed about becoming a nurse for the last six years at least and now here it is. I haven't really told anyone yet, I guess I'm just scared to tell them I've changed my mind yet again. I should be celebrating, but here I am, just as confused as ever about my future.

Christina just go for it. You are almost there. Do what your hart is telling you. Besides, you can always go for the other degree. Just think what you are going to regret the most. If you are in, and is hard to be accepted, take the chance. I always think that things happend for a reason. Nothing is casuality. If you were selected it has to be for some reason. Think with your hart too, nt only your head, if you feel the call then it is, our instinct or six sense always tells the truth. good luck.

Thanks, that's basically what I've been thinking. The only problem I have with nursing is that I'm afraid I will get stuck in an area I don't want to be in. I've wanted to be a midwife since my six yr old was born and there are a few other areas that I'd love to work in, but there are also a few that I know I would hate. I've worked on a med-surg floor for nearly two years as a secretary and I know that's not for me. Right now I'm pretty sure I will take the spot in the program and just go with it and see what happens. I know I will enjoy it, I'm just not sure exactly what I want to do for the rest of my life. I can always do something else later and an RN will definitely be a good thing to have on my resume either way. Thanks for your words of encouragement!

I tried to give up my dream to become a real estate agent. Dreams are made to come true. All success lies within you. You can do it. Becoming a nurse has been your dream for the last 6 years and it has been my dream the last 10 years. I am finally trying to get the ball rolling and I will stop at nothing to make that dream happen. Congratulations and good luck!!!!
