The Biggest Step: Acceptance

Ok, here's my first post on my new blog!

I was just recently accepted into a local Nursing program. It's very competitive, and I managed to beat out a few hundred applicants and snag myself one of the 64 annual slots available. I had a really high ACT score (according to their standards... I still felt I could have done better) of 29 and that got me into the program no problems!

So why nursing? Well it's the least amount of time to get the best paying job. It's very difficult schooling, so I hear, but I love challenges. I also really like the idea of doing a job that affects people in a meaningful way. I am currently a sales representative, and I feel that my working is boring, menial, reptitive, and not very mentally stimulating. Bottom line: nursing offers me a career that is more meaningful, pays great money, and challenges me in a way no other job available to me can.

And hey, I got the whole thing paid for by scholarships... not bad huh?

I'll be starting September 3rd officially, and by then I'll need to have my CPR license, a physical examination, and some uniforms. Until my next post...
