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.

    Wow! Criminal justice and a minor in sociology. Good for you! Unfortunately, so many of my friends who have done with college and classes can't find jobs. It's really sad because all the young people are tomorrow's future and they're not given the opportunity to give over their talents to the world. So everyone is going back to school again. Lots of luck with school and finding a job! Nursing is the way to go!
