I'm going back to School

It's been a long abscence for me here. But it doesn't mean I already have forgotten about my blogging.

I'd been busy looking for job. Jobs that I thought would make me happy. As a General Clerk back then, I felt a little bit uneasy about thinking of going back to work on the same position. I tried to submitt applications to different companies, some responded. I'd been interviewed 2 times but I felt of not liking the job because it's only part-time. I'm looking for a full-permanent job and it was so hard to find one during this time.

The 2nd week of June when I submitted an application for a state job. I haven't heared from them for so long and I finally think that they already got a candidate. Anyways, since I was a kid, I always wanted to be a nurse. But my parents can't afford to send me to school back then. Here in the United States, I know that going to college cost a lot. So I was just talking to my mother-in-law about going back to school and be a nurse and she was telling me about her experiences as an LPN in a nursing home. Hmmm?????.....NURSING HOME??? That gave me a big idea about my dream of becoming a nurse. I tried couple of Nursing homes in Montana to where I could go to class to be a Nursing Assistant. Both replied. But only one is very near to my location.

I submitted an application last week and after 2 days they called me to set an appointment for my interview. The interview day was yesterday. But Monday, the state job called for my interview!!! I was so sad!!! It's a government job and it's a good paying job. I'd been looking forward to work but...I also thought, heck...I already forgot all about it. The Nursing Home called me first for an interview for a class so I would rather go for the training. I was interviewed yesterday and got called the same day to be one of the six students for a free training among other applicants.

I am so very happy!!!

This would be the start of my new experiences in the healthcare field that I often wonder what it feels like to be a part of it. I am so excited.
