I want to be a nurse. I didn't always desire to resign to a field such as nursing. I always thought I'd be a massage therapists because my mother said I had great massage hands, but eventually I grew up and realized not every back is soft, moleless, acneless, or hairless. Elementary teacher because I've always loved chitlins, but that didn't give me enough reasons to teach an entire classroom of kiddos. Speech Pathologist, it sounded like an excellent major at the time. I wanted to love my future career. But, how can you predict the future? I had no clue if I was going to love any of these. So, I did what I knew best. Prayed to my Heavenly Father.
I was inspired that these majors lead me up to nursing. I NEVER thought in a million years I would want to be a nurse. I am not the greatest student out there, mostly because I do not test well, and it just wasn't my childhood dream. I have always been compassionate and caring for people, and that stuck out to me when I took an Intro to Nursing course. That was the main focus of this class. I think I heard the word compassionate at least 200 hundred times during that semester. This hasn't been an easy process, and I question my decision of being a nurse a lot. But, I have learned that doubting does not make a nurse. Confidence is key.
I'm in the process of looking at different nursing schools, Weber State University has been my main focus the last few weeks. It is an excellent school to become a nurse. I had hoped to be done with school two years ago, but I'm glad I didn't get myself into a major that wouldn't make me happy. I love the pre-requisite courses I'm currently enrolled in. I sometimes feel like I'm moving in slow motion, and I just want to pick up the speed so I can just be in the nursing program already. But, if I were to do that, I'd be rushing this wonderful time in my life. I'm learning that I may not be where I want to be, but I might as well enjoy this process along the way to becoming a nurse. This time is a precious time and I'm so grateful for what I've been given. I know that I will be a nurse, a darn good one at that...but, not yet...not yet.
