When I was a young child, my mom spent a lot of time in and out of the hospital because of mental illness. Ever since then, I have always been interested in the medical field. Every time we were in the hospital, I was impressed with how calm the staff stayed during those troubling times. Then, having children young and a child with special needs just furthered my interest.
I decided on Hondros College of Nursing because of the schedule flexibility. I needed a schedule to work with my full-time job. A four-year college was not an option for me and my kids. The quicker I can finish, the better for my family.
If you want it, you can do it. That’s my motto. If you set a goal, make a plan and never give up, you can become a nurse. For me, staying organized and keeping a balanced schedule with my family and job helps me succeed.
If you are thinking about starting nursing school, it is hard and overwhelming at times, but it is completely worth it. Take one day, class and test at a time!
