My Future:)

After I graduate, I want to go to college at USD in Vermillion, South Dakota. I want to go to be a nurse anesthetist. A nurse anesthetist is an an advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) who has acquired graduate-level education and board certification in anesthesia. I first have to complete a bachelor's degree in a science related field or a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I must be a licensed registered nurse. I am required to have a minimum of one year of full-time nursing experience in an acute care setting, such as medical intensive care unit or surgical intensive care unit. Following the acute care experience, I must apply to a Council on Accreditation (COA) accredited program of nurse-anesthesia. Education is offered on a masters degree or doctoral degree. The program length varies from 24 to 36 months. After that I would be done.
After I graduate from college I hope to get a decent job in Sioux Falls if I decide to stay in South Dakota. Also after graduating college, I hope to get engaged to an amazing guy and get married and start a family. I hope to wait to get married till after college but if it were to happen before I was done, I would be okay with it. I hope to have four kids. :) I already have some of my names picked out for my kids but not all of them.
Later on in like, I hope to move up to be an Anesthesiologist. I want to be an Anesthesiologist because I just think it would be really interesting even though it can be very dangerous. You have to make sure you give the patients enough anesthesia so they can't feel the surgery that they would be having and many other things that you have to be very careful for. I really feel like I could do it even though it is very testy.
That is about all for my future. :)
