    26 yrs old

    married with a six year old daughter and 2 yr old boxer

    bsn austin peay

    not sure of grad date in dec '07

    this fall i am taking adult health i, child health promotion, nursing informatics, clinical integration, and lifespan pharmacology.

    i just finished my psych and mental health rotation, i took it over the summer.

    i would like to be in some area of pediatrics.

    i haven't found anything i am great at yet. maybe i am a good test taker?!
    what scares me the most is the lack of skills practice we get as students.

    i want everyone to come to my graduation, but i will be happy with my daughter, husbands, parents, grandparents, and aunt and uncle. (that is a lot!)

    i want to walk and go to the pinning ceremony.

    our uniform is a white scrub top, white scrub pants, and white shoes. we have our school patch on our left shoulders.
