A Long and Difficult Journey
checking the job opportunities available at the end of my first year of studies, we revised our thought process, and I started to prepare for a career in nursing despite tremendous odds against my making it into the program. I had been out of school for more than eleven years before returning, was starting a program that demanded a high level of excellence to even get accepted, and was studying in a language that was not my native tongue.
Pictured above with me is a friend who was in some of my classes and was a great encouragement to me as I made this journey. Finally, after two years of late nights and much study and lots of encouragement and prayers by my husband and sons, I received my acceptance into the program. Although I am only a little over halfway through this journey, a tremendous hurdle has been cleared. Of more than five hundred students who applied for the program, only eighty were accepted. I am thrilled to be entering the program. I know there are difficult times ahead, but with the Lord's help, I know I can finish the journey.
