As many of you know (hopefully) I have made some pretty drastic changes in my life lately.
One of the biggest in my opinion is finally choosing my life long career and starting college!
I have always been good academically. It was the "Oh, I'm a teenager, school doesn't matter" part that screwed me out of an actual high school diploma and urged me to get my GED.
Anyways... I have decided that no matter how hard I have to work, no matter how much time I have to put into reaching my goals I will do it. And I will succeed.
I have already taken the first (or second if you count my GED) step toward my major goal of becoming a BSN, which is getting myself into a CNA program. I started on September 18th and I am already falling in love with the field and fast pace nature of it all.
Now there are many different ways to go about becoming a BSN. And for me I felt that it was the wiser choice to take things slow. To get my CNA so I could start working in the field right away while taking pre-requisites and then getting into an associates degree program. After that program is finished I will try to get into a university to get my bachelors degree, but that's years down the road.
On Monday I actually applied to a Technical College near my house to get on the wait list for the associates degree program. There is a 1-2 year wait, which is totally fine because I have to take a total of 13 classes before I will even be fully wait listed.
I plan on taking 3 classes each semester (might change if I feel like it's too much after the first semester) and then going forth with the two year associates degree program.
It's a lot.
And I cannot wait to get started in Spring!
Wish me luck! :)
