As of July 20th, I have been accepted and enrolled as a student at South University. My classes will offically begin on August 4th. I'm so excited! See More


Too many infants and babies in the world die before they ever get a fair chance at life. Everyone knows someone who has lost an infant due to complications at birth. We are, however, very lucky to live in a time where neonatal medicine is being research and expanded upon daily. My heart has always ached when I hear the stories of tiny lives that are lost so early in their existance. For a number of years now, I have been working towards an ultimate end goal of working in neonatal medicine. I started my journey by certifying as a Medical Assistant, in a 9-month program where I re-learned all the skills that I would need to continue as a Nursing student. In July of 2016 I applied to, and was accepted into, a Nursing program where I can attain my Bachelor's of Science in Nursing. I was lucky enough to qualify for a full Pell Grant, but the Financial Aid package is not going to be able to cover all of my tuition expenses. I have also applied for scholarships providing assistance for adults who are returning to college. I am hopefully that I may receive some additional funding from those sources. However as a full-time student, I will also have to find a way to cover the costs of transportation, food, and living. Scholarships and grants are mostly sent directly to the school to cover the cost of tuition, and cannot help to provide for my personal expenses and needs. I have very high expectations for myself as a student, and my goal is to remain in the top ten percent of my class throughout the length of the program. I believe that I will be the most effective in my goals if I can fully dedicate myself to my classes and studies; however I know that I may need to find part-time work if I cannot find additional funding for my school costs. My end-goal for my personal re-education is to certify as a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner; This will require approximately ten more years of schooling to acheive. I am reaching out to anyone who has experienced the loss of an infant, anyone who has watched the pain of a family whose baby could not be helped, and anyone who believes that neonatal medicine is a necessary field of study. I feel a calling to work in this field, and to provided care and assistance to families and infants who would not otherwise be able to live a healthy life.
