I graduated high school in 2008. I started college, had my son in Oct. 2008, and was a non-stop college student until I graduated nursing school. I decided to work towards becoming a nurse in January 2012 by enrolling in an LPN program. Then, I transferred because I already knew I was going to be an RN and doing LPN first would slow my journey by 2 or more years. I began nursing school and a new job as an ER Tech in Spring 2013, graduated in May 2015, and began working in an NICU. I began a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner program Summer 2018 with plans of graduating in May 2021.
