Exciting Decision Reached!

I just have to share my exciting news with everyone! A life altering decision has been reached. I will be pursuing further education after my imminent graduation in May. I will graduate with High Honors and a Bach. in Business Administration specializing in Human Resources. However, this is not my passion. I have decided to pursue either a BS in nursing or a master's. There are accelerated programs for both. The BS would take about a year and a half. The master's would take three. I have even thought about applying to Yale's Graduate Entry Prespecialty in Nursing (GEPN) program. This results in a master's degree in three years of round the clock study. I am so excited!! If I don't choose Yale, then I will go to one of two universities in Indiana that offer accelerated Bach degrees in nursing.

Anyway, my point is that I am going to go into the medical profession because it has always been my passion and because I have personally experienced the profession from a patients point of view. I have seen what a great RN can do for patient satisfaction and care.

I am researching more but I think this is my path. Maybe the ten years of pain and suffering was not for naught. Maybe I will become a nurse who works with Chiari patients. I would have to work for Dr. Di or Luciano at the Cleveland Clinic though since the rest of the Chiari docs and I do not see eye to eye (zipperhead vs. endoscopic).

Wish me luck!! I could use the support. I will keep you updated on my progress.
