Ok so, I was totally freaking out about being one of a MILLION people trying to get into a nursing program and was convinced that ultimately I would not getting in. Most of you have had to endure my fretful stories of this endeavor and will be happy to read on.
When things were looking their darkest, I caught an unexpected break. No, I haven't heard back from any of the schools yet BUT, I did get recruited to join a Massage program. Hooray, purpose!!!! I can start this program and finish later if I get accepted into a nursing program. OR, if I don't get in I can finish massage and try again for nursing next year. Yay for options!!!! Either way it's win-win and I am THRILLED to be starting SOMETHING.... especially something so up my alley that can compliment nursing.
My first lab was Friday where our small cohort of 6 did yoga for a half hour and gave/received massages for the next 3 & 1/2. Can you say heaven? More news on school to come. I should know by end of April about all the programs I applied to. In the mean time, I'll be blissfully learning the art of massage and finding joy in being in school once again. xo
