Nursing Assistant


The American Red Cross is offering a free 5 week nursing assistant course for spouses of active duty military men/women. There were four slots available and I got #2! So in mid-september, I will begin! I am super excited! I feel as though God just handed this opportunity to me and all I had to do was apply and was accepted!

My grandma was a surgical nurse for many years and I've always wondered how I would do as a nurse, myself. Here's my chance to do it! For roles of a nursing assistant, click here. It doesn't seem like the most glamorous job, but I am looking forward to helping others be more comfortable while they are in pain or suffering. The annual salary is about $23,000, which I wouldn't mind having, either.

As for working after the training, right now I am planning to work until we are pregnant or until we feel it's time for me to stop working. A couple of months ago, Tyler & I fasted and prayed for an opportunity like this. I know that God answers prayers.

Yay! Congrats!
I always thought that would be a good job. When I worked in a Dr. office, it was always the girl that took the patient back, took her vitals, & deposited her in a room that was the NA. She also ran errands for the RN. Seemed fun.
Good luck!
