Post Taking another huge step!
Last year I made a big change by moving back to Florida on my own. Why stop there?! lol

I have decided to apply to nursing school. I am scared to death & excited at the same time. It's something I have wanted to do for 20 years but never had the opportunity. With the military life, moving constantly & living in places that didn't offer the courses, I had given up hope. The university here has a fantastic nursing program and I have a really good chance of getting in. My tuition will be covered because I have the GI Bill from the military that was transferred to me. I should also get some grants that will help with other expenses.

I don't know what I expected but when I mentioned it to Tom, he just sighed and started complaining about money. I should have skipped that phone call. I wanted to run it by him because he knew how long I've wanted to be a nurse and I had to put everything on hold for his military career. He said that when we got back to the U.S. that I could go to school. I know things are really different with us now but I figured he would understand. And I was wrong. :grrr:

The application package can be turned in starting March 31st. The classes wouldn't start until September. No idea when I would hear about getting in or not, but I'm working on my application package & gathering all the transcripts & info. I am really excited about this... even if it is crazy to go back to college at 42 years old and start a whole new career path. :D

I'll keep y'all updated when I turn in the package... I'm sure I'll need lots and lots of dawg thoughts throughout this process. I'm not mentioning this on facebook.

Thanks for the support everyone! My parents have been great. They are really encouraging me to do this.

And I'm not going to worry about Tom's negative crap. :) This is for ME!

We will be your cheering section! I have a friend that just finished, it took her 7 years but she was determined. She is a decade older than you!

And remember Tom is your ex for a reason :lol:
