Career plan #328

I have a new addiction. Every day at 11:00 AM I have to tune into TNT for ER.

I have a new idea for a career haha. I'm actually thinking about Nursing now. I want to be Carol Hathaway lol.
Anyways, I think I'm kind of drawn to it because there are so many ways to advance within the field. I can go to get my BSN and then go back for an MSN when I know what I want to specialize in. I hoping that when I get into working with HOSA this year I can figure out if I'm cut out for it or if I like it or whatever. I don't know, it's just another idea. It'd just be nice because I could start working after four years compared to like every other major I've looked at that I have to go to school for at least six years before I could get where I want to be.
I first started thinking about this like a couple of weeks ago and I've just been praying, you know, God show me if this is the direction you want me to take. So Sunday I had extended session and it just so happened that the class I had and the class above it combined that day and it just so happened that two new people who had never worked in there before were on their first rotation. Well, the woman who was in there also just so happened to have recently graduated with her latest degree to become a Nurse Practioner. She started talking about her job and school and everything without me even saying anything about it. I ended up telling her that I had been thinking about Nursing and she gave me some helpful information and advice. The more I thought about it that just seemed like an answer to prayer. I mean nursing still may not be what I end up doing, but how would it just so randomly happen that this woman who I didn't know otherwise was in that class with me and started talking to me about it? What's funny is that I know plenty of people who are nurses that I could've asked about going into the field but I think God brought it to me before I even had to ask anybody. I don't know, the biggest thing is that she gave me a better perspective on how big the field really is and how many different opportunities there are with that one degree. I think that would suit me because I don't see myself as the type to do the same thing every day for the rest of my life.
One day I'm going to look through this blog and laugh at myself for all my different plans about what I'm going to do with my life haha. Probably about the same way I think God laughs at me when I come up with them.
