My Nursing Journey
Nursing is a big part of my life. It definitely has its ups and downs, but it has been rewarding thus far. I'm so happy that I made this decision to make nursing as my life-long career. There are so many opportunities in this field and I can't wait to learn more and experience what nursing has to offer for me in the future. I've decided to dedicate a page to write nursing articles of "How-tos" and blog about my nursing experiences.
School has been a long, adventurous journey for me. I started out at Towson University originally to go after my Bachelor's Degree in Nursing. However, seeing the amount of money I had to loan out for Towson was really shocking. I had to come up with another way to go around and get into nursing. So I've decided to get my Associate's Degree in Nursing through a community college and plan to continue to get my Bachelors/Masters in that order.
I officially got accepted into nursing school with College of Southern Maryland in 2012. I will be taking my last class this fall and I am so excited to be one step closer to being finished. I plan to graduate in December 2015 and continue to take classes next year towards my Bachelor's Degree. I also completed my Licensed Practical Nurse certificate last summer 2014 and I currently work as an LPN in the adult observation unit. I hope to further my career as an RN once I pass my boards after school.
Update: On March 11, 2016, I passed my boards and I am officially an RN! I currently work at the hospital on a medical/surgical unit. I currently attend University of Maryland School of Nursing for my Bachelor's Degree.
