So, for the first time in my life I may know someone that knows someone, ha ha. I worked at the base hospital here as a LPN a year ago and made some really good friends who I hang out with on a monthly basis. One of my friends is a civilian RN (retired Navy) who works with and is one of the higher ups in the Medical squadron. She and I talked yesterday about my goals and she made it seem like she could help me out by talking to the Chief Nurse here. I don't want to get my hopes up, so I ask again...how much weight does their recommendation have?
