I'm an Altered Artist/NURSE!!!!!!
FINALLY DONE WITH SCHOOL! AND I PASSED! Yes, the Five years of waiting to become an RN has passed. I'm so happy, thrilled, excited and spent! This has been a difficult, yet worthy experience to be back in school in my 40's, but well worth the journey.
I want to thank you all for being so kind, patient and understanding during this time. I love Swap-Bot and all my swapping friends. I promise not to let anyone down! Karma will bring great things to you! I believe I've contacted everyone in my swaps. I also believe I've rated everyone that was due! If not, feel free to nudge me!
I'm a recent RN graduate! Whoohoo! My dreams are to become a Nurse Practioner and practice in either Neonatology or OB/Labor/Delivery!
I also dream/plan of having a home on the East Coast one day. I would love to have a beach house where my future grandkids can visit whenever they want!
