New To The Forum & Excited to Be Here! =)

  1. Hello Everyone!
    I am currently a pre-nursing student at Montgomery County Community College. I'm almost done with all of my pre-reqs. This semester I'm taking Nutrition, Math course (pre-req for Stats) upper level Sociology class & Developmental Psy. I applied at Gwyneed Mercy College and I should here from them by the beginning of Feb. Very nervous! If I don't get in, I'll stay at Montco and start clinicals in the Fall. So wish me luck! Either way I'll be on my way to realizing my dreams. I'm a mother of three (ages 15, 14 and 5), happily married and my goals are to become an NP specializing in Cardiology. For many years I worked as an interpreter for patients who suffer from COPD, CHF and diabetes. I loved the job. Well, once I become an Rn, I want to work part-time and continue until I become an NP. I go to school full time now and work part time so it shouldn't be too bad. I hope! Any advice will be welcomed. My dream job....is to work in a hospital meeting the needs of the hispanic population. I feel that as a bilingual nurse I would be of great use to them. Thanks for taking the time to read this and I'm looking fwd to meeting many new nurses and future nurses. One more thing...anyone here from Montco?? or Gwyneed??

    Welcome Nena! I'm not from PA but I am amazed at the similarities of our backgrounds and career goals. I am currently in a bachelor nursing program and cross my fingers for you to get into yours. I am also a married mother of 3 and have the goal of being a CNP (as we call nurse practioners here in Ohio). I am taking a minor in Spanish with the desire to care for the hispanic population here in a public health setting. Are you a native speaker of Spanish? Anyway, I enjoyed your message and the similarities I saw in it! It is intense to be in school, work outside the home, and be a wife and mom. I feel sisterhood with you due to our mutual blessings and challenges!

    I'm smiling here...thinking that I'm going to enjoy this site very much. I guess we can motivate each other when times get tough! I'm impressed that you are minoring in Spanish to help the Hispanic population. I am latin american so I grew up speaking Spanish, or what we sometimes refer to as Spanglish. :chuckle One of my goals is to become a certified interpreter. Although I worked as one for several years, I would like to make it official and carry the title. Well thanks for the warm welcome and I look fwd to speaking to you more often.

    Take Care
