Nursing School Not Far Off

I went back to college in 2005. I had gotten married quite young and had my first baby by the time I was 21. I had had big dreams of being a Newscaster. Surprised? Well I have been told by many that I have a fast, yet clear and firm speaking voice. I was told in high school that I needed to go into some kind of field that required speaking such as Radio and Television Broadcasting. I loved the idea. I really did and pursued it hard. I had everything lined up. Things didn't quite go that direction. I married instead. I have NOT regretted it for one second. I love my husband dearly and though I sometimes do wish I had went to school AND gotten married I didn't even think of it back then.

I went back to college with the idea of becoming a dental hygienist. I realized shortly into my courses of Anatomy and Physiology, Microbiology and Chemistry that the classes were the same as a nurse would take. I realized that I would MUCH rather do that. So I changed my dreams. I still didn't know what *kind* of nurse I wanted to be. Then I got sick. Again I don't talk too much about that here, but just know that it made me want to be an oncology nurse. I want to pay it forward as they say. So I must get my application for the college of nursing in before February so that I qualify for the fall of 2010! Ugh. I hate that it takes so long but at least I finished all the prerequisites. I loved school. I still love it. Some think I am crazy but I just LOVE it. I made honor roll. It is nice to do it as an adult. I mean, come on, an A in Chemistry?? Woot!!! Haha Yeah. I still have the talent for public speaking it seems because in my college speech class the teacher AND one of the older students said I should be a lawyer after a persuasive speech. I get just as nervous as the next person...but when I am called up there I just put on a whole new face. And a little tip? Look at people's foreheads, not their eyes. It still looks like you are, when you really aren't. Frankly if I imagine people in their underwear it just makes me laugh!!

I feel the same way as you about school I'm in right now myself late in life, I'm just glad I decided to go back and who would have thought that I would love to go, with no complaining. I have quite some time to go before I finish though. Congrat's to you and I hope all goes well for you in becoming a nurse.
