I just wanted to put out here that with finishing up my pre-req classes these next couple months that time flew really fast! I just wanted to thank everyone who has inspired me and gave me great advice. My very first post was about how the heck am I going to even do this nursing thing? I am a mom of two young kiddos and just lost a job as a graphic designer and was scared because I never thought in a million years that I would even attempt something that is so challenging mentally and physically. For anyone who doubts themselves, for anyone who thinks that this is not an option that you are not smart enough...I want you to stop. Take a breath. And make a goal. I have been out of high school since 2001 and was a C student, I am currently holding all A's because I set a goal that I would get all A's in my pre-reqs. Was it hard heck yeah!..but failure is not an option for me since I have two sets of beady eyes looking at me, depending on me to give them a better future. I say good luck and set your goals early and never doubt that you can't do it because you can!
