I have been officially been accepted into the Spring 2011 semester Nursing Program at CSN!!! I was at work when I got the call and I reacted just as I thought I would, with tears. This has been such a long time coming for me. I started 4 years ago if not longer and had to start and stop twice due to the pregnancies and births of my two beautiful sons. The decision to go back was gut wrenching both times. It took a lot of hard work and dedication on my part and an amazing amount of support and love from my family and friends and getting here is only half the battle.
On top of feeling elated about the acceptance I also feel good about the fact that I now get to embark on a journey that's solely about and for me. What I mean is, sure it'll benefit my children and family, but doing this is something I have wanted for myself for what seems like a lifetime. I spend so much time doing for others that in the process I find myself not doing things for me and now I have the opportunity to better myself for me and to do something to improve my quality of life on an internal level.
It's going to be a long hard road but I am fortunate enough to have some of the best family and some of the most devoted friends to help guide me along the way. Plus, knowing a handful of some of Nevada's finest nurses helps too!!!
