During this time, I have also revisited a passion of mine and started painting art on days that I'm not in the hospital. I have to say, that after being in the medical field for almost 30 years, the world of art has given me new opportunities to grow and meet new people who could care less about hospitals. So refreshing.
This new found energy became a determining factor in my decision if I should go to NP school or not. And I tell you, the decision to give up my sit in the NP program was well worth it because I'm having the time of my life right now.
I'm still a nurse 3 days a week, but, I'm arting the rest of the time. Between the two, i find myself well occupied and having time fly while having a great time.
