Today was my first day of school for me. I attended orientation for the Doctorate of Nursing Practice Program at George Washington University. My focus will be in Health Policy. I have a whole lot of hopes and dreams for this degree. Most of them have to do with my current role in our local public school system, but all of those are rooted in the experience of my own children and how much better life would have been for him if agencies they worked with had health policies that were trauma informed.
I know how insane it is to commit to a doctoral program while parenting 11 children and one college ager. But, I have done crazy things in the past and had them work out beautifully.
In fact, that’s how all those kids got to me.
So, here I go…
