Hi all.

Tomorrow I am officially changing my major from elementary Ed. to Nursing. I have had such a hard time trying to decide what I want to do but in the long run, I think I will enjoy nursing much more. I am hoping to get into Pediatric or Psychiatric nursing... I love kids but I find mental health so fascinating and IMPORTANT! (My grandparents were both Psychiatric nurses, my mom is a secretary in a Mental Hospital).

So right now, I go to school in VA but I am moving to RI next year with my boyfriend. I am thinking of applying to URI because I have an acquaintance who got a BSN from URI and has a great job in a Pediatrician's office. Some girls have all the luck!

Anyway, I took an anatomy class in HS, none of the blood and guts grossed me out... so that's a good sign. I still wonder if I'll be able to handle the vomit and mucus and urine.. but I figure once I become a mom that stuff's gonna happen anyway, so why stress it? Someone has to do it, right? :)

So at least say hi...

I'm like, so excited... I'm gonna be aNURSE! (in 3 and a half years :p)

Hi Cassiggity! I recently made the decision to go into nursing, as well (over the summer). Unfortunately, I didn't come up with that decision while I was still in college, so I have to go back to school!

Congratulations on your decision! :balloons:
