Topic 1 DQ 1 I have decided in enroll in the BSN program at this time because I have big dreams and high goals. I plan on getting my S.A.N.E certificate, or Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner certificate, after completing my degree. It is not required, but I want to be more secure in my nursing career before I start down that path. After my BSN is obtained, and my S.A.N.E certificate is done, I plan on going back to school for my Masters in Forensic Nursing. I am a determined person, and know I will complete this task, but it does not come with reservations. Going back to school will prove to be difficult, because I am working full time and a single mother of two little boys. My support system where I live is small, but it is strong. Time management and starting assignments in plenty of time will be essential for me. To a be a successful student in an online classroom, you first need to understand the student portal.
