Many reasons. Many good, positive, right reasons.
To start, I had a horrible last quarter. Horrible to say the least. My very last day of finals, I "failed" my Physiology final by 2 questions. The minimum grade you can get in any Nursing core class at this particular school is a 70%. If you get any less, you have to (x) amount of tuition to retake the whole thing again along with getting held back 3 months. I just happen to get a 68%. I was half way through and this happened? I had an overall 80% grade in the class... I worked the hardest I have in my life last quarter, I was studying 25+ hours a week outside of class. Well, come to find out it was a Blessing in disguise. It brought to light what I really wanted to do with my degree, to achieve and to succeed at. I have always wanted, and dreamed about attending a respectful University.
If I were to stay at the private school I was at, ZERO of my credits would transfer to a regionally accredited University. I would have basically had to start over when I wanted to work towards my Bachelors, then eventually my masters. Awful, I know. I knew this going into the program, and initially I was fine with having an AAS in Nursing, but have since changed my mind.. For the better I hope! I want more opportunities in my field. I recently attended a NICU conference and had some nice talks with several Nurses that were there. I got some wonderful advice from many of them and took it to heart. Many have said that the outlook in the next 5-10 years is that hospitals may start requiring a Bachelors degree for RN's instead of an AAS in Nursing. So I'm going for it! Taking a huge leap of faith and never looking back. It is hard to take in that the whole last years education is virtually worth nothing and that I have to repeat all of the classes, but I feel this is the right and best decision for my future as a Neonatal Nurse. I start classes in less than a month, starting off with 13 credits. I am so excited! Shouldn't be too hard to get a good GPA this quarter. Shooting for a 4.0. Wish me luck on all of this!
