A little bit of an update...

So, for those that may not know, I'm back in school. I started in the Fall of 2009, and in January of 2011, I'll be applying for the nursing program at the College of Dupage. It's a two-year program, so as long as everything goes as planned (I'm not holding my breath) I should be graduating with an ADN and be a Registered Nurse in May of 2013. The tentative plan after that is to continue school to get a BSN, but I'm just taking it one step at a time. First things first, I have to get accepted to the nursing program.

So far so good, though. My GPA is a 4.0, which is really important, since the program is so competitive. Only 110 spots and the school gets hundreds of applicants each year.

This summer, I have the pleasure (yeah...) of taking a Certified Nursing Assistant course. I get to learn how to give old people sponge baths and how to use mechanical lifts and all sorts of other fun stuff... Wish me luck :)
