I do have an interesting story when I graduated from high school back in 1987 I went to college for Business Management degree. After college I worked in a Juvenile Court System office. After several yrs. I landed a great job in a General Surgeons office and Medical office manager. I loved this job but the surgeon retired and I had to persue something else, I went to the local hosp. as insurance clerk, to a handicapp workshop as administrative assistant. In Jan. 2001 my grandfather died from emphysema, the family did alot of taking care of him. This was when I knew I should go back to school and become a nurse so I can help people all the time. My family was supportive and encouraging. My mother gave me a clipping from a newspaper article that was dated back in 1972, I was around 4 yrs. old they had my picture and what questions they had asked me that day. One of the questions was What do you want to be when you grow up? my reply a nurse. Maybe it just took me this long to realize that maybe I have a gift of helping and supporting others that need help. I am in the prenursing stage, I have taken all my prerequisites, I am just waiting to pass the pre-entrance exam, that I have taken 4 times and did not pass, by 8/10 of a point. This is very discouraging, I beginning to wonder know if this is the right path for me. I am a christian and pray alot for this to happen, but maybe God has other plans for me, maybe it is not nursing. In this time of not passing the entrance exam, I started CNA classes and passed with flying colors and avg. 98 and got my license May 2006, this is what I am doing now, sitting with a lady that had a stroke. I think sometime that maybe this is as far as I am to go with my career, maybe God wants me to stay where I am at now. But I take the exam again in OCt. I am not giving up. Sorry to bore you, but it's nice to tell someone of my journey. God Bless and good luck to you.
