I just want to say hi. This is not my first post on the forum but I've never really introduced myself. I'm an LPN student in PA, planning to go on to pursue an RN degree as soon as possible. I used to be an IT manager before the recession hit. And no, this is not my consolation prize for the career I used to have. I started thinking about nursing school in 2000, but couldn't bring myself to walk away from a paycheck. The paycheck walked away from me, and I'm thrilled to be pursuing the job I'm really supposed to do.
