checking them in and out of rooms, visiting with families, assist with other projects as well as bake cookies. Putting a smile on a child’s face and their parents faces because I made their child smile brings me much joy. My schedule with school, working and taking care of my kids is very hectic now, so I wouldn’t be able to make the necessary commitment to volunteer. My plan is to start saving money and quit working once I start nursing school, so I could focus on school and my kids. Once I quit working, this will free up time available to be able to volunteer at places like this, to get hands-on experience. My long-term goal is to finish school with a Master’s degree and become a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. I know being in nursing school while being a full-time mom is going to be challenging. I currently work full time, go to school at night due to a conflicting work schedule and I still must come home and help my kids with their homework. Sometimes I can get very over whelmed. When I start feeling over whelmed I pray to God and ask him to give me the strength, and motivation to push forward and finish school. One of the reasons why I plan to quitworking while I’m in nursing school, is to relieve myself of some of the added stress that I currently endure. Until than I plan on persevering by studying hard, focusing, managing my time and my money wisely. Doing these things will help me make the necessary changes in the future to make things easier on me. As a Nurse Practitioner life for me will drastically change. I will be much happier doing what I love and that’s working with kids. I will be able to afford a better lifestyle where all my needs and my kids needs are met. I couldn’t be more proud of myself ; I took the first step to changing my life, that step is starting College.
