Day 05 → Something you hope to do in your life
I hope to go back to school and finish this time. I don’t know if it’s in the cards for me and also considering the lack of free time outside of work and my family, but I wish so much to go back and get my nursing degree. Then maybe even be able to take the next step and receive my masters to work in an advanced practice role, like Midwifery.
I can’t decide if I want to work in Maternal Fetal Medicine with High Risk pregnancies or in an Adolescent Ob/Gyn practice area. I’ve experiences both first hand. I found out I was pregnant at 19 with my first daughter and then developed Preeclampsia, experience 2 weeks of bed rest and then was induced 2 weeks early. When I was pregnant with Rory, they found a Chorioangioma and so with both pregnancies I was monitored weekly. Those nurses who provided my prenatal care and were with me throughout my labors are people I will never forget. I aspire to be half as good as they are one day.
I need to be a nurse. If I won the lottery tomorrow, I would quit my job, but I would use the money to support my family while I went back to school full-time. It’s in my heart, but finding the guts to put other priorities second and go back after that dream has been hard for me.
