    Good Morning, Harry: No, I'm not near San Diego...but I've heard it's a nice city. Maybe relocation is something I will think about after school. Portland isn't where I desire to stay my whole life!

    The Community Health nurse I talked to hear, said her role was to act as a go-between for community resources, healthcare for clients, etc, and cordinate it all, but beacuse she worked by herself to asses people, she needed to have very strong clinical background. So, I was curious if there were specific requirements for such a position. Several people have mentioned working for the Health Department, and I don't know if that's whoe she workd for, but I will do some research! I will definently do some more research, as this seems very appealing to me. Thank you!
