Back to School....Back to School....

So I started my last "core" class in the PNP course track this week. Nursing theory is what the class is called...hmmm...not sure what to expect. All I know is that it is 3 credit hours, online, I have a lot of reading to do and it better be manageable while on maternity leave :) I am slightly nervous about how I will juggle this, but taking the semester off was not an option for me.

  1. To prove to my dad that I'm not a fool. Got my lunch backed up, my boots tied tight. I hope I don't get in a fight. Oh, back to school, back to school.

  2. I actually was reading along and thought the book sounded interesting. Hmm, maybe I'm just boring myself?
