Glad to see everyone here! It's nice to be able to communicate with some other mom's who are following this path, it can be daunting to get all of this done with a little one. I really believe I have found my "calling" in life, but I must say, I wish I had found it before I had this baby. But I can't beat myself up too much, we had some extenuating circumstances, and some fertility issues, and this is just the way the cookie crumbled, I guess.
Well, after some hemming and hawing, I just dropped off my application for the local ADN program, despite being almost certain won't get in. I swear the registrar darn near rolled his eyes at me when he saw my transcripts. It's a super competitive program, and despite the fact that I have a 4.0, I haven't taken either of my anatomy courses yet, so I most likely won't have enough points to put me in the running. . . . Ah, well. Was worth a shot, right?
In the mean time, I'm going to continue to attend my local CC and hopefully finish my gen eds for a BSN, which I will *hopefully* be able to start in Fall or Spring 2012.
Lacie, I'm also seriously leaning towards (like, so far I am nearly toppling over) becoming a nurse-midwife. If not, I know that I will want to become an APN of some sort. Lots of school ahead of me, and hopefully more babies too, it should be an interesting time!
Sending out good vibes and hopes that everyone gets in to their program of choice soon!
