New Ambition

Well after much prayer, discussion, confirmation, and door openings, I have begun a new ambition... I am pursuing Nursing School.

Yeppers... today marks my first day of class at Baptist College of Health Sciences. I am taking Anatomy & Physiology 2 this trimester on Saturdays. The plan is to pursue a class or two each trimester, with a clinical start day of Fall 2011. Once completed, I will not only be an RN, but will also have a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (which will be my 2nd degree).

I'm excited and nervous all rolled into one. I'm confident that this is the route I'm supposed to pursue right now, and something new is always exciting, but with any new endeavor the unknown is there. I told work before Christmas about my ambitions, looking to be as transparent as possible with them along the way. I am so thankful and blessed as to how they received the news. Prior to speaking with my boss, my boss' boss, and my boss' boss' boss (aka one of the owners of my company), the conversations were totally bathed in prayer, and as always God heard our prayers. I will still work full-time, not affecting my current job at all for awhile. I will attend classes either at night during the week, or on the weekend (Saturdays).

This first trimester I'm taking 5 credit hours. 4 hours worth of A&P2 = lecture + lab, and one hour for my Intro to the college class. I will attend that intro class on Wednesday nights.

So the McGoo's will both be in school this year... making life interesting as always. The hubby is pursuing his 2nd semester of his sophomore year this semester and will be tackling 20 credit hours. Keep us in your prayers. :)

Good luck, but I know that luck is not involved. I know you will accomplish whatever you set your mind to do.
