Who's going to Nursing School?

I have decided through MUCH prayer and program searching to start a path to Nursing school. I applied to a nights/weekends program through Baptist because I need to continue to work full-time while going to school. This program was for people who already have a Bachelor's degree in another field to get a Bachelor's of Science in Nursing in 2 years. However, the semester that I was to begin, the program was shut down. :( So, I looked in to EVERY other program in the Memphis/Mid-South area where I could build on my current Bachelor's to acquire a Bachelor's in Nursing in the shortest amount of time possible. :) All of the current BSN programs are full time day hiss! :( So, I decided to go through Southwest TN Community College to get my RN license and Associates Degree of Applied Science (having a little difficulty with having 2 Bachelor's Degrees, a Master's, and an Ed.S. and starting over at an Associates degree but it's just a stepping stone in the process, right?). I would then like to transfer over to UT Medical to enter their RN to BSN program which is a 17 month part time program~meaning I can either still work as a school counselor or as an RN if I get hired at LeBonheur Children's Hospital. That is where I ultimately want to be~in the NICU at LeBonheur with the sweet babies. :)
So yes, I have begun a journey down a totally different path, it may work out and things may change but I am going to take one day at a time and see what God has planned for me.
