I recently got accepted into a nursing program and start in January. For the last two years I have been reading the posts and responses here on all nurses. I have to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who has shared their stories and their opinions because I have learned loads before even stepping foot in a hospital. Many of you have prevented me from most likely making BIG and small mistakes by sharing your points of view and personal experience, and reminded me what I am working towards and why. I know I have a lot of learning to do in school and after, but your stories provide an education I don't think nursing school will touch. I hope I can come to be a skilled and humble nurse like many of you are.
