So far, all is going very well. I was accepted to Michigan State University, Wayne State University, Oakland University and University of Detroit Mercy.
Although, each of the colleges had wonderful nursing programs, I chose the University of Detroit Mercy solely because, of their direct admission into a nursing program. I was accepted into their nursing program and I am currently taking classes and working my way towards my four-year BSN. It can be a bit overwhelming at times but, so far I’m loving every minute of it. Being in the direct admit nursing program is definitely hard work because, it is a heavy load of classes to be taking in one semester but, I’m hoping to finish in four years and then move on to graduate school to become a Nurse Anesthetist. The University of Detroit Mercy tends to be more a commuter school but, I chose to live on campus this year, in hopes to meet people, make friendships, form study groups and just get the whole college experience. All in all, I would like to thank the Ric Gonzalez Memorial Foundation for their generous contribution to my education. It has been greatly appreciated I can’t thank you all enough. Hope you enjoy the upcoming holidays with your family.
