I am 51 years old and have been taking 2 classes per semester at Community College since the Fall of 2011. I am trying to go to nursing school and found out today that I have been accepted to an LPN program!! I am very excited but, NEED more funding to make it happen. I would use this scholarship to help put me through Nursing School. My dream goal is to be able to quit work and focus on school. Nursing School is going to be very challenging and I would like to devote my time to studying and getting great grades. In order to do that I would really need to quit work. My current job will also not work around a school schedule. Any financial help would be GREATLY appreciated!! I have raised 4 incredible kids and they are all grown now, so I want to pursue my dream of becoming a Nurse and helping as many people as I can. I have been an EMT for 10 years and I love it! I have always had a “Caretaker” personality and I would like to use those talents to continue to help and heal people. I really love little kids and would love to work in a Pediatrics Office affecting the future of the world through our youth.
