I am officially two ish weeks into my Adult Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Graduate Program at The University of Cincinnati (online). I don’t know what I was expecting grad school to be like, but it’s hard. I didn’t really have any expectations going into grad school, besides graduating obviously, but throughout these past two weeks, God has revealed and even bigger plan for me than to “just graduate.” Since this is an online course, there is a lot of communication between classmates via discussion boards, open forums, videos, Facebook, and e-mails. Well, from all this constant communication, God has given me the opportunity to be a light. I am going to try my best to stay positive this semester, and encourage others to do so as well. To study and prepare with good work ethic. To help my classmates in ANY way possible. I want to be the person in my online class that someone notices something different about. It’s hard doing online classes because you have to teach yourself, and organize your schedule around what needs to be done by certain times. So, my goal is to exemplify someone that remains organized and completes things well ahead of schedule if possible, all while giving God the glory. I don’t know how some of these people are doing this, especially the ones with kids! More power to ya, but I know that IT CAN BE DONE. Despite the long list of to-do’s, and the infinite number of pages we are required to read, the end result of all this hard work will be worth it. I pray that God blesses me with this opportunity to glorify Him and be a light in the darkness, and I also pray that someone comes to know him out of this adventure called Graduate school.
I hope your friday is filled with smiles, laughs, hugs, and Jesus.
stay beautiful! xoxo
