Quit my job last week after deciding to become a nurse practitioner. This journey will take about four years, but I didn't have any plans anyway. I'll finish the one class I'm taking now in September, then start full-time in October.
It just came to that point. I was hating floor nursing, and actually became fearful of my license at the last place I worked. If I can squeeze through this without doing any floor nursing over the next few years, well it will suit me just fine.
