I Finally Decided

(you have to read this in a sing-song voice)
"I DID IT! I DID IT!"
(thanks, wasn't that fun?) :)
I have enrolled in school. I start my CNA class the Monday after Thanksgiving. So, hopefully, I will be working in the hospital at the beginning of next year.
Miracle of miracles...the local hospital is hiring CNA's...in Labor and Delivery!!! This couldn't be anymore perfect. I am so excited. It will be some crazy school hours (over 50 hours in one week!), but, by the end of it, my clinical hours and one state exam....I can be around babies whenever I want! This gets my foot in the door, so that I can begin working toward my RN.
Yay me! I'm so excited!

Girl, you truly amaze and inspire me! With all that you have on your plate with your Mom, your kids...to take something like this on yet too -- W-O-W!

I'm so excited for you though, as this seems to be exactly what you want. As someone who had great nurses when having my babies, I know that it is a wonderful gift having nurses there who REALLY and TRULY care about babies.

You just continue to amaze and inspire me! I'm proud of you- you know, the teacher thing means that I am always for it when someone WANTS to learn something! I know this will mean less time for blogging (hear glass shattering around the room and a big gasp), but I will look forward to hearing about your classes, etc when you have time. I know it will be busy and crazy at first, but it will be worth it. You will be so wonderful at this job and it seems like all the signs are pointing you in this direction! You will be a pure blessing to anyone who is in Labor and Delivery! You Go! oh, and Good Luck!!

I LOVED being a CNA. I loved it. It was so great and I met so many wonderful people. I am in the same boat as many. I sure wish I had the guts to start over and do nursing or PA. I would love it. COngrats.. and let me know if you need any advice on ted hose ( you have to pass it on the state exam) Who is doing the training.


MUCH LOVE!!!!
