Hello all, I am currently a pre-nursing student, at this present time I will be ready to apply to nursing schools this fall. I live in ca in the bay area and it is very competitive to even get in. For the past three weeks I have been volunteering at my son's elementary school. I have been helping the speech therapist and I am having an amazing time! I love it. I am working with k-5. We see the same students weekly and I cant explain the joy I get from the progress they are making. Some are autistic and some arent, some just have speech delays and the like. But I really like it. My family expects me to be a nurse since I have come this far but I'm kind of rethinking it, I dont want to let anyone down. I like nursing also it has always been a life long dream. I have been taking my prereqs forever it seems. But now I am very confused. Sorry I just needed to let that out since I havent told anyone about it.
