Where were you when you got your acceptance letter to nursing school? How did you feel?
The year was 1984. I had come upstairs from checking my mailbox in the dorm at Memphis State, opened the letter and said "YES!!!". I was on my way to my life career. I called my folks and they said congratulations, we knew you would make it! A few days later, I got a card from my high school principal saying she was proud and looked forward to seeing the "RN" behind my name. I still have the acceptance letter and card to this day!
