Hey everyone. My name is Zoltan, I am a male and happily married to my high school sweet heart. I am currently going through school to get my nursing diploma. Doing so has put me and my wife in a tight spot though.
A little bit about myself and why I decided to go into nursing:
I learned about machinery from my dad and ever since that time I was hooked on learning about what they did and how they worked. So from the time I was 14 years old, I learned as much as I could about the machinery in Glass and Stone industries. When I graduated high school I was offered a job as a CNC Technician for Glass and Stone Machinery. This job allowed me to travel the world doing this job for many years. But being a newlywed, to my high school sweet heart, when I started, this was damaging to my marriage. After a few years I found a job locally as a manager of a granite counter top shop, Things got better. But then came the fateful day when the company I worked for went under leaving me without a job and a without a final paycheck. So I moved to Edmonton and started working out here as a CNC programmer. This job was quick to get, and easy to do so I jumped at the chance. Working there, was a few of the best years of my life, as my bosses were always great to me. It pained me when I decided that I wanted to follow another career path but in the same breath it excited me. My employers were very understanding and wished me well as they had turned into my friends throughout my employment. I decided to go into a field that I was unfamiliar with, Nursing. Being a male I figured I would have a task and wow was it ever a task.
Throughout my life I have been first on scene for multiple accidents. Having my industrial level 3 first aid I was obligated, by my morals, to help those who needed it, many times when I had been first on scene for accidents of all kinds over the years. Age was not a determining factor in these accidents as I had helped those ranging from newborns to grandparents. For many times in my life, I had been told by my friends, family, and even strangers, that I should go into the medical field because I had such an amazing a talent for it. Finally, after years of contemplating, just over a year ago I had some life changes that made me rethink my career of 14 years. I wanted to start a new in a field that I seemed to have a knack for. I started my nursing program just over a year ago and I have never looked back. I have been maintaining a 3.5 GPA and am absolutely enjoying my time in learning my new career. I know that this is what I was put on this earth for.
The only problem I have with this is, now being in school for a year and nearing the end, I find my schooling has cost my wife and I more then we can afford.
Please help me in achieving my dream. Every dollar helps and please help me reach it. Help me become the best "Murse" (male-nurse) out there.
Thank you to everyone that helps.
help the Murse!
