I decided to return to school for my BSN at this time due to the increased need for further education. As the hospitals and the medical field advances so should our education. I have always wanted to teach and after many years of floor nursing this is a good time for me. I watch the new nurses coming in and often help them getting started in their careers. It is exciting seeing them starting out and remembering how I felt. Maybe I can help in some way make ths transition for others easier. And it would be a great learning experience for me.
I love learning and school. Classroom is my perferred way of learning but at this time that will not work. I work full time nights and am helping raise two of my grandchildren. My life is full, but I still have plenty of time to do what is needed to be a sucess in this career choice. I have my own office and all the things needed to complete my assignments and research. Sleep is my biggest problem, what with working nights. So I need to plan my time off well. I try to make my schedule to allow me several days off at a time. This allows for my rest and getting things done.
I am looking forward to this exciting advancement in my career and learning experience. I will need to use all of my resources and available help to make it but I think it will be a lot of fun. My famiy is very excited and more then willing to help me.
