I went to the interview yesterday to see if I'm qualified enough to take a class for Nursing Assistants. I wasn't nervous then and I'm still not really nervous. I won't know until next week as to if I get to take the class or not.
I know if I get this opportunity, I'll be able to get into a worthwhile career instead of looking for another entry level job in something like assembly through a temp agency. I enjoy people, so helping them through hard times will be fulfilling for me.
I know that if I take it at this location, I'll also have a better opportunity to get into this location, which is within walking distance and since we are a one car family, it's a requirement for me. If I were in need in my later years, these are the places I'd want help from.
With the boom of people coming into that age, the baby boomers are starting to age into the needs help age, there will be more need for people like me to be there to help out. If I can get into this, perhaps we can get my husband into it too. We'd be able to work hours that are compatible and both be enjoying our jobs instead of just having to go to work.
But for now I wait. I wait to see if I made the cut. I wait to see if I interviewed well enough. I wait to see if my lack of questions didn't throw me off the list. I wait to see if this will be the starting point to more education down the line so I can work in harder positions.
These are both more expensive classes and cheaper training than I could get going for a big degree in something. It will be worth it in the long run to start out. I may be older than some of the candidates, but I also have more life experience.
I'm crossing my fingers that I made the cut!
