I’m A College Student… Again…
Monday, January 04, 2010
I’m moving forward in the right direction with this year and my life. Today I enrolled at the local college here and am going to become a registered nurse. I applied late though so I’m only able to take one class most likely this semester. One is better than none and now I’m enrolled so I can apply for scholarships and financial aid for later in the year.
I have a B.S. Criminal Justice and minor in Sociology yet I can’t find a decent job. I tried going back to school for journalism but they really wanted to screw me over, so I only went for one semester there. At least most of those general education courses needed for the nursing program will transfer just fine and I’ll only need to take a couple. After that it will be all nursing classes.
My hours/days at work will need to be adjusted so I hope that they are understanding and work with me. If not, I’ll have to find somewhere else to work because I am going to put this above that job for sure. Hopefully it won’t come to that though. I will also still be able to do some freelance writing to help cover some expenses.
Overall I’m rather excited. Going back to school for this isn’t just a thought anymore – it is a reality.
