The Color of Nursing - Paperback
Erin started her path in Nursing after initially FAILING nursing classes due to lack of focus and lack of discipline. Married at 21 years of age, and a new child on the way, she was compelled to get out of her own way and grow up! While on a waiting list to enroll in a different undergraduate nursing program, she decided to enroll in a Licensed Practical Nurse Program and worked as a nursing assistant until graduation. She worked 8 years as a LPN thinking that going back to school yet again was out of her reach. With a defaulted student loan and barely enough money for gas to travel to take the entrance exam, she received the call within 48 hours with notification of passing the exam and was accepted into Alcorn State University. Now with a 3 hour daily commute, no way to pay for school and a less than supportive work supervisor, she realized that the negative talk from others and herself was only background noise and used that negativity as fuel to press forward.
There is more to this wonderful story of success.
