T-minus 22 Days!

Twenty-two days until my first day back to school. I'm super stoked about this!

The decision to go back happened rather randomly. I was sitting on the couch watching TV one day last week and I got the urge to look and see what classes I had left for my teaching degree and nursing degree. (I was originally an education major until last fall.) I only need 4 classes to finish my pre-requisites for my nursing degree and then I can apply for clinicals! 

I casually mentioned it to my husband later that evening and he told me to look and see if they offer the classes I need at night. And whaddaya know? They did! This is going to work out perfectly because Adam can watch Aiden on the nights I have class and this saves us from having to put Aiden in day care! So I signed up for 2/4 of the classes I need. I'll take the other two classes next spring and then I can apply for clinicals in May!

There's so much to do before I can apply, and the program is really competitive. I'm such a nervous wreck and I'm completely terrified I won't get accepted. ugh! I will be taking Anatomy & Physiology II and Life Span this Fall 2013 Semester and I will take Microbiology and Dosage Calculations in the Spring 2014 Semester. I have to pass the Dosage Cal exam with a 90% or better, I have to make sure my immunizations are up to date, I have to get a TB test, get CPR certified, and so much more. My mind is going to explode just thinking about it. Nursing school + an infant = one crazy mama! This should be interesting. I'm so thankful I have a loving, supportive husband to stand my side through all of this!

Taking this past spring off from school to have a baby gave me a good break. Sometimes, so much of school wears me down and I start to fall in this rut of carelessness. But I'm so looking forward to going back and getting this all behind me so I can get a job. I love being a stay at home mom to Aiden, but I hate watching Adam carry the burden of being the sole provider. My heart yearns to help him. And the quality of life we both so desire we can not make happen with a one income family. 

Cheers to getting my life together!
