Well I'm really excited to let everyone know that I received an acceptance letter from the Uni of Tas today to commence the Bachelor of Teaching next year (2009). I'm really happy and feel good about this so now I can't wait to start.
A few months ago I began making plans to return to nursing but after discovering this would require full-time study in Launceston AGAIN (been there, done that, don't want to do it again!! Launceston that is...sorry to all of those Launceston fans. I love the people but I just don't want to live there again), I decided to follow another path I have often thought about (and almost did instead of nursing all those years ago). I submitted an application and just a few days later was nicely surprised to find the acceptance letter sitting in the mail box.
It is a 2 year full-time course or you can do it part-time over a maximum of 5 years. I'm aiming for 3 years...we'll see. I'm happy because I will only need to attend 1 two hour lecture and tutorial a week to begin with. I think that will be a nice way to ease on back into the uni/studying thing. Anyway YA for ME. and 'up your bum' Nurses Registration Board' - sorry hope that doesn't offend anyone!
