    My passion for nursing and the medical field has been a driving force in my life. As a 34-year-old Mom of three kids, my goal has always been to become an RN BSN. I started my medical field journey right out of high school and received my certificate in nursing assistance. After a few years, I moved across the country, returned to school, and received my Associate of Science in Medical Assisting. I finally returned to school to get my RN BSN and was recently accepted; I started on May 8, 2023. This date marks the beginning of a new chapter in my life. I want to show my children that you can always reach your goals regardless of age. I will be attending college full-time and working full-time. I am applying for as many scholarships as possible to help lower the burden of payments I would need to make due to being a single parent. I have always been passionate about nursing and the medical field, and I can't wait to fulfill my dreams! I have wanted to be a nurse for as long as I can remember. In my high school yearbook, I answered, Registered Nurse when they asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I grew up surrounded by amazing nurses. My aunts are both registered nurses, and my grandmother is an LPN. I loved hearing stories from the Emergency Room, Operating Room, and ICU. I grew up believing that nurses are the real superheroes. I also helped my mother raise my two younger brothers, and I wanted to continue caring for people as a career. Right out of High school, I went to CNA classes and became certified when I was 18. I moved across the country when I married an active-duty airman and worked as a CNA in the long-term care Unit at the local hospital. My years as a Medical Assistant have been a testament to my resilience and adaptability. I have seen a lot of different diseases and worked through the Swine Flu, Zika virus, Ebola, and Corona Virus. These experiences have tested my resilience and adaptability, and I have emerged stronger and more committed to the field. During the COVID-19 virus, I decided to pursue nursing even further. During the pandemic, I learned much about medicine and wanted to help as much as possible. It has been 13 years since I received my Associate of Science, and I started classes for my BSN RN on May 8. I want to continue moving up the nursing ladder and help as many patients as possible. Being in the medical field has been the most rewarding career. I could not imagine doing anything else. I have even recently considered going even further to become a Nurse practitioner. As of now, I want to specialize in Psychiatry and Emergency medicine. There are not enough mental health providers and help for patients, and being put on a waiting list that is months out is delaying their healing. With hard work and perseverance, and even though I am not fresh out of High School, I have years of experience to bring to my education and classmates to complete my RN BSN degree successfully.

I finally returned to school to get my RN BSN and was recently accepted; I started on May 8, 2023. This date marks the beginning of a new chapter in my life. I want to show my children that you can always reach your goals regardless of age. Despite the challenges of being a single parent, I will be attending college full-time and working full-time. I am applying for as many scholarships as possible to help lower the burden of payments. I have always been passionate about nursing and the medical field, and I can't wait to fulfill my dreams! I have wanted to be a nurse for as long as I can remember. In my high school yearbook, I answered, Registered Nurse when they asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I grew up surrounded by amazing nurses. My aunts are both registered nurses, and my grandmother is an LPN. I loved hearing stories from the Emergency Room, Operating Room, and ICU. I grew up believing that nurses are the real superheroes. I also helped my mother raise my two younger brothers, and I wanted to continue caring for people as a career. Right out of High school, I went to CNA classes and became certified when I was 18. I moved across the country when I married an active-duty airman and worked as a CNA in the long-term care Unit at the local hospital. My years as a Medical Assistant have been a testament to my resilience and adaptability. I have seen a lot of different diseases and worked through the Swine Flu, Zika virus, Ebola, and Corona Virus. These experiences have tested my resilience and adaptability, and I have emerged stronger and more committed to the field. During the COVID-19 virus, I decided to pursue nursing even further. During the pandemic, I learned much about medicine and wanted to help as much as possible. It has been 13 years since I received my Associate of Science, and I started classes for my BSN RN on May 8. I want to continue moving up the nursing ladder and help as many patients as possible. Being in the medical field has been the most rewarding career. I could not imagine doing anything else. I have even recently considered going even further to become a Nurse practitioner. As of now, I want to specialize in Psychiatry and Emergency medicine. I chose these specialties because there are not enough mental health providers and help for patients, and being put on a waiting list that is months out is delaying their healing. I want to be part of the solution to this problem. With hard work and perseverance, and even though I am not fresh out of High School, I have years of experience to bring to my education and classmates to complete my RN BSN degree successfully. I am committed to lifelong learning and professional development, and my experience and dedication to the nursing profession will make me a valuable addition to the medical field.

I have worked through the Swine Flu, Zika virus, Ebola, and Corona Virus. During the COVID-19 virus outbreak, I decided to pursue nursing even further. During the pandemic, I learned much about medicine and wanted to help as much as possible. It has been 13 years since I received my Associate of Science. I want to continue moving up the nursing ladder and help as many patients as possible. Being in the medical field has been the most rewarding career. I could not imagine doing anything else. I have even recently considered going even further to become a Nurse practitioner. The sky is the limit, and even though I am not fresh out of High School, I have years of experience to bring to my education and classmates. I want to continue to help my community by working in rural health. I enjoy volunteering at the local domestic violence shelter, ranking up leaves for older people in my community, and I'm actively involved in my son's Cub Scout Pack.

While working at the hospital, I started schooling for my Associate of Science degree and Medical Assisting. I also became certified by the American Association of Medical Assisting. After graduating, I completed my training at the air base hospital and was hired at the local family medicine clinic. During my years as a Medical Assistant, I have seen a lot of different diseases. I have worked through the Swine Flu, Zika virus, Ebola, and Corona Virus. During the COVID-19 virus, I decided to pursue nursing even further. During the pandemic, I learned much about medicine and wanted to help as much as possible. It has been 13 years since I received my Associate of Science, and I started classes for my BSN RN on May 8. Returning to school at 33 has been a big achievement for me and it has taught me I can do anything I set my mind too. I want to continue moving up the nursing ladder and help as many patients as possible. Being in the medical field has been the most rewarding career. I could not imagine doing anything else. I have even recently considered going even further to become a Nurse Practioner. The sky is the limit, and even though I am not fresh out of High School, I have years of experience to bring to my education and classmates.

My aunts are both registered nurses, and my grandmother is an LPN. I loved hearing stories from the Emergency Room, Operating Room, and ICU. I grew up believing that nurses are the real superheroes. I also helped my mother raise my two younger brothers, and I wanted to continue to care for people as a career. Right out of High school, I went to CNA classes and became certified when I was 18. I moved across the country when I married an active-duty airman and worked as a CNA in the Long Term Care Unit at the local hospital. While working at the hospital, I started schooling for my Associate of Science degree in Medical Assisting. I also became certified by the American Association of Medical Assisting. After graduating, I completed my training at the air base hospital and was hired at the local family medicine clinic. During my years as a Medical Assistant, I have seen a lot of different diseases. I have worked through the Swine Flu, Zika virus, Ebola, and Corona Virus. During the COVID-19 virus outbreak, I decided to pursue nursing even further. During the pandemic, I learned much about medicine and wanted to help as much as possible. It has been 13 years since I received my Associate of Science. I want to continue moving up the nursing ladder and help as many patients as possible. Being in the medical field has been the most rewarding career. I could not imagine doing anything else. I have even recently considered going even further to become a Nurse practitioner. The sky is the limit, and even though I am not fresh out of High School, I have years of experience to bring to my education and classmates. I want to continue to help my community by working in rural health and mental health. I enjoy volunteering at the local domestic violence shelter, ranking up leaves for the elderly in my community, and I'm actively involved in my son's Cub Scout Pack.

    Dr. Christine Lawther First in the Family Scholarship
    Being the first in my family to obtain a college degree means the world to me! Being the oldest of three children, I hope my brothers see they can get their degrees, too, even as adult learners. I hope my educational journey inspires my relatives to return to school to obtain a degree or finish a degree they never completed. It took me 13 years to go back to college, but it has been worth it and has given me new confidence. My goal has always been to become an RN with a BSN.

In my high school yearbook when they asked what I wanted to be when I grew up I answered, Registered Nurse. I grew up surrounded by amazing nurses my aunts are both registered nurses and my grandmother is an LPN. I loved hearing stories from the Emergency Room, Operating Room and ICU. I grew up believing that nurses are the real superheroes. I also helped my mother raise my two younger brothers and I wanted to continue to care for people as a career. Right out of High school I went to CNA classes and became certified when I was 18.

While working at the hospital I started schooling for my Associate of Science degree and Medical Assisting. I also became certified by the American Association of Medical Assisting. After graduating I completed my training at the hospital on the air base and was then hired at the local family medicine clinic. During my years as a Medical Assistant, I have seen a lot of different diseases. I have worked through the Swine Flu, Zeaka virus, Ebola and Corona Virus. During the COVID-19 virus when I decided that I wanted to pursue nursing even further. During the pandemic, I learned so much about medicine and I wanted to help as much as I could. It has been 13 years since I received my Associate of Science. I want to continue moving up the ladder of nursing and continue to help as many patients as possible. Being in the medical field has been the most rewarding carer. I could not imagine doing anything else. I can not wait to start school, I am both excited and nervous. I have even recently considered going even further to become a Nurse Practioner. I feel like the sky is the limit and even though I am not fresh out of High School I have years of experience to bring to my education and my classmates. My three kids are also supporting me and asking me if we can start doing homework together once I start school. They have also told their friends that their mommy is going to be a superhero. I want to continue to help my community by working in rural health and hopefully mental health. I enjoy volunteering at the local domestic violence shelter. I can make an impact in my community!

She runs her own counseling office and trained me on the different aspects of the business. I have another friend who works at the local domestic violence shelter where I have volunteered and seeing the work she has done amazes me, our town did not have a shelter and women and children would have to be placed in the next town over but she made it happen to were our small town has its shelter and they can keep victims closer to their support systems. I am so blessed to be surrounded by amazing women who are running their own companies, breaking down barriers and paving the way for more women to be able to succeed in reaching their goals. If not for these trail-blazing women I may have not had the courage to return to school as an adult student.

I want to continue moving up the nursing ladder and help as many patients as possible. Being in the medical field has been the most rewarding career. I could not imagine doing anything else. I have even recently considered going even further to become a Nurse practitioner. The sky is the limit, and even though I am not fresh out of High School, I have years of experience to bring to my education and classmates.

    I am a 33-year-old Mom of three kids. My goal has always been to become an RN with a BSN. I started my medical field journey right out of high school and received my certificate in nursing assistance. I moved across the country, returned to school, and received my Associate of Science in Medical Assisting. I finally decided to return to school to get my RN BSN and was recently accepted; I started on May 8, 2023. I want to show my children that you can always reach your goals regardless of age. I will be attending college full-time and working full-time. I am applying for as many scholarships as possible to help lower the burden of payments I would need to make due to being a single parent. I have always been passionate about nursing and the medical field, and I can't wait to fulfill my dreams! I have wanted to be a nurse for as long as I can remember. In my high school yearbook, I answered, Registered Nurse when they asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I grew up surrounded by amazing nurses. My aunts are both registered nurses, and my grandmother is an LPN. I loved hearing stories from the Emergency Room, Operating Room, and ICU. I grew up believing that nurses are the real superheroes. I also helped my mother raise my two younger brothers, and I wanted to continue to care for people as a career. Right out of High school, I went to CNA classes and became certified when I was 18. I moved across the country when I married an active-duty airman and worked as a CNA in the Long Term Care Unit at the local hospital. While working at the hospital, I started schooling for my Associate of Science degree and Medical Assisting. I also became certified by the American Association of Medical Assisting. After graduating, I completed my training at the air base hospital and was hired at the local family medicine clinic. During my years as a Medical Assistant, I have seen a lot of different diseases.

The sky is the limit, and even though I am not fresh out of High School, I have years of experience to bring to my education and classmates. I want to continue to help my community by working in rural health and, hopefully, mental health. I have dealt with mental health struggles and have become an active peer support specialist to help bring awareness and break the stigma on mental health. There are insufficient mental health resources for rural communities, and I want to change that. I enjoy volunteering at the local domestic violence shelter and community events, such as raking leaves for elderly community members. I can and will make an impact in my community!

    Being diagnosed with BiPolar II at 21 changed my life, and I thought it was the end of me and a "normal life." I have struggled with mental health for over half my life; I was misdiagnosed with Anxiety and depression for four years until I was diagnosed with BiPolar. Once I was diagnosed, I was on several new medications and was told to seek counseling, but I thought it was the end of normalcy due to the stigma surrounding mental health. I fought my diagnosis for years and would get on meds and then stop them. I finally met a fantastic counselor who changed my life. He was the first person I met during my roller coaster ride of life with bipolar disorder that told me I would be okay and gave me the tools I needed to do my daily life activities. He helped me love myself again and realize some of the toxic things in my life that were causing me pain. Unfortunately, I lost my insurance and had to move on from him as a counselor, but I will never forget his impact on my life, and if not for him, I'm not sure if I would have made it to this point in my life. Not only am I pursuing my BSN RN, but I want to specialize in psychiatric care. There are not enough counselors, medication management, or mental providers, and I want to help and be a part of the cause. I do my best to speak about mental health awareness as much as possible because the stigma is still there. I am a Certified Medical Assistant at a Family Practice office, and it still blows me away when I hear fellow employees speak down against mental health. I am quick to say I understand why the patient would feel that way, and I openly talk about my Bi-Polar disorder. I went years without wanting anyone to know about my bipolar because people would judge me or look down on me. My ex-husband was particularly cruel, threatening to take my daughter away from me because I was "crazy" and wanted to leave him. I was fortunate to get out of the marriage and have primary custody of my daughter. My current husband has been excellent in trying his best to understand what I'm going through. He recognizes my good days and knows when I'm having a rough day. He gives me space but is always there. He helps me stay on top of my medication and sleep schedule. I speak with my three children about mental health and what it means. They know that mom does her best every day, but not every day is good, and that's okay. I tell my kids it is okay to not be okay, and it's okay to talk about their feelings. I believe awareness is vital, and it will save lives. I am proud to be a BSN RN student who lives with Bipolar disorder.

I could not imagine doing anything else. I can not wait to start school, I am both excited and nervous. I have even recently considered going even further to become a Nurse Practioner. I feel like the sky is the limit and even though I am not fresh out of High School I have years of experience to bring to my education and my classmates. My three kids are also supporting me and asking me if we can start doing homework together once I start school. They have also told their friends that their mommy is going to be a superhero. I want to continue to help my community by working in rural health and pediatrics. I can make an impact in my community!

    I am an almost 33-year-old Mom of three kids. My goal has always been to become an RN with a BSN. I started my medical field journey right out of high school and received my certificate in nursing assistance. I moved across the country and went back to school and received my Associate of Science in Medical Assisting. I have finally decided to go back to school to get my RN BSN and was recently accepted, I will start May 8, 2023. I want to show my children that you can always reach your goals no matter how old you are. I will be attending college full-time and working full-time. I am applying for as many scholarships as possible to help lower the burden of payments I would need to make due to being a single parent. I have always been passionate about nursing and the medical field and I can't wait to fulfill my dreams! For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be a nurse. In my high school yearbook when they asked what I wanted to be when I grew up I answered, Registered Nurse. I grew up surrounded by amazing nurses my aunts are both registered nurses and my grandmother is an LPN. I loved hearing stories from the Emergency Room, Operating Room and ICU. I grew up believing that nurses are the real superheroes. I also helped my mother raise my two younger brothers and I wanted to continue to care for people as a career. Right out of High school I went to CNA classes and became certified when I was 18. I moved across the country when I married an active-duty airman and worked as a CNA in the Long Term Care Unit at the local hospital. While working at the hospital I started schooling for my Associate of Science degree and Medical Assisting. I also became certified by the American Association of Medical Assisting. After graduating I completed my training at the hospital on the air base and was then hired at the local family medicine clinic. During my years as a Medical Assistant, I have seen a lot of different diseases. I have worked through the Swine Flu, Zeaka virus, Ebola and Corona Virus. During the COVID-19 virus when I decided that I wanted to pursue nursing even further. During the pandemic, I learned so much about medicine and I wanted to help as much as I could. It has been 13 years since I received my Associate of Science and I am now starting classes for my BSN RN on May 8.

I want to continue to help my community by working in rural health and hopefully mental health. I enjoy volunteering at the local domestic violence shelter. I can make an impact in my community!
