For the first time since I decided to go back to school in 2010, I am not a nursing student.
I am a full-time college student, I am not a nursing student.
I am looking at the world from a new window, I am not a nursing student.
I don’t really know how to react to this or even describe what it feels like, to say the words “I am not a nursing student any longer”.
I am not done no matter what people may think. I know that my future has not been set in stone. I know that when I was looking forward to the day I graduated from Nursing school and faced the prospect of being a new grad and being 40 years old that scared the crap out of me. Now, I am 40 years old and I am facing starting over from scratch.
“I am not a nursing student…I am not in nursing school…I am not a nurse”
That makes me incredibly sad to say.
