Well....I made it in. Why don't I feel like jumping for joy?
I had my meeting today with my case worker and found that I had passed my tests
and gotten all my paper work finished.
And this means that the government is going to pay for me to take the CNA course.
Not only that...but they will pay for my books and anything else I have to have.
That means when I have to have shoes, scrubs etc....I tell them what I need and they pay for it. :)
I do hope they let me wear clogs again...that is something I grew to love in the restaurant business.
I'll have to have my instructors fill out paper work saying that I am coming to class..no skipping..and then report to my case worker when I finish the course and test--6 weeks.
Can I tell you that I am a tad more than nervous about that test?
I know they will prepare us...but I have never been fond of being a failure. :)
Dear God...please don't let there be a lot of math!
And....I have been out of school for at least 15 years...does this brain still work?
My case adviser told me it would start working fine.....I am going to hold him to that!
So around the 25th of this month....I go back to school five days a week from 8 to 5.
That just might just take some getting used to.
I think I will be pulling out the ole crock pot....that or we will be eating lots of beans since that is about what Keith is used to cooking when I don't.
Maybe I should send him to culinary school. :)
Of course I won't be bringing in any money during this time...but when I get out they will get me a job.
Should I decided that I do not want to stop at CNA....they will pay for me to keep going. Dean, my adviser, told me that he had a woman start with CNA and is now going for her LPN. It is nice to know that they will pay for as long as I want to go. He mentioned that I might want to go and become a phlebotomists.....you know that sweet person that comes in and draws out vials and vials of your blood. :)
I don't like watching them do that to me...but hey.....maybe it will be different when it is someone else?
I will say that I just NEVER saw myself going in this direction.
But who knows what God knows that I don't.
At LEAST the uniform will be comfortable and I won't be working in the heat of a kitchen. :)
If this is what a CNA is trained to do.....then I guess I do have a jump start. :)
Love you thanks for taking this journey with me...oh...and since we are taking this journey together...anybody want to take my test?
o.k...just thought I'd ask ;)
