I got my certified nursing license (CNA) after I graduated high school and worked as a CNA for many years. As time went by, I realized I wanted to provide more hands on care. I wanted to draw labs, insert foleys, do trachea care etc. That is when I decided to further my education and take my passion to the next level.
I looked into Hondros College of Nursing in 2017 but at that time it did not work out. A few years later I received an email from Hondros, so I called the admissions representative and the process started. The price was more accommodating than the schools in Michigan for me. Due to COVID-19, I was able to have virtual classes and a flexible schedule.
The best advice I can give to someone who is considering nursing school is be prepared for the challenges you will have to endure during school. Nursing school is not a walk in the park. Pay attention to every detail, and study alone and in groups. It is important to figure out your best mechanism for learning (reading, audio, visual). If you believe you are destined for greatness, you can do anything that your heart desires. Set your goal and achieve it.
