I am currently enlisted in the National Guard as a Military Police Officer. When I was in high school I was dead set on becoming a Police Officer because I wanted to help people. But after being in the military side of things, I've come to find that I'm not getting what I wanted out of it. I've had lots of leadership push me and praise me for so much of the hard work I do and even some that pushed me to test with their civilian police departments. After slowing down, I took a full time job with the Guard. 8:00-4:30 at a desk, interacting with Veterans and people all over the state. Decent Pay, I'm exceling. But this isn't where I see myself. While I do love the guard, I would love a job where I'm pushing myself, on my feet and interacting with others, going to bed at night knowing I helped someone that day, even in the smallest capacity. I've done research, looked at the pros and cons. My fiancÃ©s sister is a teacher at a hospital and has helped me along the way. Problem is, I took easy classes in my high school career. Loved everything except science and math. I've been graduated for almost 3 years. I feel like now is different because I know I'll apply myself. I deploy next year and hope to start pre requisites while I'm overseas. I also ordered college books from thriftbooks.com so I can jumpstart my mind on things like anatomy and physiology, fundamentals of nursing, etc. Could this be for me? Is there anything else I can do to prepare? Advice? Words of encouragement? Thanks in advance.
