It was one of the longest semesters of my life by far, but I can definitively say that I finally get to start nursing school next week! So much has happened this semester leading up to this point, and I am beyond excited to have made it to this point. For those of you who do not know, last semester while I was in the ATU library studying like there was no tomorrow for my Physics I and Fundamentals of Organic Chemistry finals that I knew there was no way I would pass, I had somewhat of an epiphany. I realized that this path was not the right one for me anymore and maybe hadn’t been for a while. So, I stopped what I was doing right there in the middle of the library, took out my headphones, and prayed. I asked God for guidance and wisdom and for Him to reveal to me the path that he would have me take. Afterwards, I applied for UACCM online because I knew ATU was no longer the school for me either.
I was accepted and set up my schedule to finish the prerequisites that I lacked to apply for the nursing program that started in the summer. I had to rush around getting my financial aid worked out and snagging the last seat in the 8-week courses of Anatomy and Physiology I and II so I could finish them both in time for the summer program. Then came the time to take my. TEAS entrance test (which I passed) and all the studying that came along with. I applied for the LPN program starting summer 2018, and, to my surprise, I was accepted. So, to say that this moment is a long time coming might be a bit of an understatement.
“The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.”
That does not mean that the hard work is behind me though. I finished finals this past week, and I start nursing school next Monday. This week, I am rushing around trying to get everything in order. I have a list of stuff to buy – backpack, books, shoes, socks, shirts, stethoscope, watch, nursing kit, nursing bag, and, in a few weeks, my uniforms. I also have mountains of paperwork waiting to be finished – loan application, the rest of my background check, TB skin test proof, CPR certification proof, etc. Not to mention, this is nothing compared to what is coming when I start school. I know it is going to be hard, but that’s alright. I don’t need easy, just doable. The good things in life are worth the work, and this is no exception. I am blessed to have been given this opportunity and look forward to updating you as i progress throughout the year. At the bottom of my homepage just so happens to be a countdown to graduation (yes, I am already counting) of you are reading and want to see how close I am.
