Jul 16, '04Occupation: Patient Care Tech Joined: Jul '04; Posts: 15thank you so much for the kind words. I haven't signed in in awhile as I have had so much to do here lately. I finally turned in my notice at work that July 30 will be my last day. I am not sure why, but I had butterflies in my stomach when I handed in my notice. We are so similar in what we are trying to do. I only have one child and I too have put off my schooling for years. I am finally going to make it happen for me. I have been running around trying to get my cpr class out of the way and I am also taking a refresher math class that is being offered before school actually starts so as you can see I have been really busy. Exactly when do your classes start? I haven't taken any of my pre-reqs and man, I wish I would have.
Quote from jennielynnRN2B33: wow--you really have your hands full; huh? A little off the topic but just wanted to say that even though I don't know your husband; you can bet in my heart I appreciate what he's doing for our country! I come from a long line of military men--so I know how important it is to let them know we are behind them 100%!
I haven't had to take any pre req's except a college level course (I chose A&P I) to prove to the nursing director that I could pass it. So, I will be taking a full course load the whole way through. I'm nervous--yet excited! I too, have put aside my dreams to raise my family and now it's time to focus on MOM for a little. I'll still have hubby & kids to take care of; but atleast I know I'm doing something for myself too. I've dreamt of being a nurse since I was a little girl; and now I have the opportunity to make that dream come true! It's funny--I realized while taking my A&P course that I appreciate my education a whole lot more now than I did when I was younger---maybe my "raincheck" on pursuing my passion was a well though out plan devised by someone higher than I!!!
I wish you luck in school and with juggling family life. I don't know what I'd do w/out the suppport of my dh; and although your husband supports your decision too--it must be hard not having him home. I will keep you and your family in my prayers and I look forward to sharing our nursing school experiences!!!
