I'm going to be a Nurse...and a skinny one at that!
Friday, October 28, 2011
I found out yesterday that I got into the Nursing school at my university!!!!! I am one of 30 people accepted for the winter semester starting in Jan. Around 500 people apply each semester and the average GPA for those that get in is 3.93.
This is a big deal for me. I've been working toward this for the last two years. I was even thrown a bit of a hurdle when I got pregnant and had my second daughter half way through completing my prerequisites. I had my daughter 10 days before the winter 2011 semester began. So many people told me I couldn't do it and that I should withdraw from my classes. My sister-in-law (gotta love her) even told me that having a baby meant I shouldn't and wouldn't be able to get into the nursing program.
So mostly I'm here today to say "IN YOUR FACE!" to everyone who doubted me and to say "thank you for believing in me" to the few people who did.
Now it is down to business! I have 75 days until I start classes and I would like to buy my coveted university nursing scrubs in a smaller size.
My motto while I was working toward getting into the Nursing program was:
"DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO, WHEN YOU HAVE TO DO IT WHETHER YOU WANT TO OR NOT"
Keeping that in mind got me through a lot of all night anatomy study sessions. This is also my motto with my diet and fitness goals. Some days I won't want to work out, but it is what I need to do...so I will do it!!
