A NEW start...HOPEFULLY

I am not sure how much I have talked about previously regarding my classwork over the summer. Let's go back even more in case y'all don't know at all what I (Kim) am doing. I am working on a Master's degree in nursing which when I am finished, I will be a Family Nurse Practitioner.
Over the summer, I took a Pharmacology class (basically studying drugs and how they effect the body)which I subsequently did not pass. It goes without saying that I was pretty devastated and it really made me re-think what the heck I am doing! I was discouraged and just really thought I was not cut out for this. I don't doubt that I am a good nurse, I know I know what I am doing, but this class just KILLED me.
Anyway, it was possible that I might not be able to continue in the program. However, it has worked that I have one more chance to complete this course. I am also taking 2 additional courses with this one to total 3! That is more than I have done previously so I was able to go down to part time work-only on the weekends!
ALL this to say, I would appreciate all your prayers and encouragement the next 10 weeks as I endeavor on this CRAZY PHARMOCOLOGY adventure.
Sorry to share probably more than what you want to hear. Thanks for reading.

Kim - my heart goes out to you as I worked full-time all last year while I also worked on my Masters. It is really hard to do and I admire you for tackling so much. You are in my prayers for sure!

Wow! I'll be praying for you, believing God's promise to give us the desires of our hearts...and I can't imagin that this degree isn't part of His will for your life. Thanks for having the courage to share this with us. :)

Best of luck to you Kim. Eric is taking 3 classes per semester and it doesn't sound like a lot to most people... until you try it. Keep us updated.
