¡¡ACCEPTED!!

I got the call this morning to tell me that I've been accepted into the nursing program at Pima Medical Institute that starts Aug. 31st... WWWWHHHOOOOO- HHHHHOOOOOO!!! I'm SO excited! I was nervous that I wouldn't get in because they don't have a waiting list like MCC (where if you apply you will be accepted, but you might have to wait for like 2 years before you can start). Pima's selection process is based off of your academic achievements, work history, personality (all that good stuff) and they choose the top 36 applicants for the program. There were a TON of people putting in for this cycle, so I feel like I had to work harder to get accepted at this school. I'm VERY excited!! It feels like I'm actually getting closer to achieving my goal :D! I know the next 2 years are going to be hard (having to leave Roman when I'm doing 10-14 hour clinical rotations) but I know it's going to be totally worth it! I feel so grateful to have this opportunity to progress :)!!

Yay! I am so excited for you! That is so awesome, you will do so great in your program. I have been meaning to call ever since I got your text and taking care of 6 kids has kept me off the phone and internet, but congrats!

Good job Ashleigh. That's an amazing accomplishment. I'm so impressed, and a bit envious. If you ever need a fill in sitter for Roman let me know.
