Hi Lauren and Chris!!
Thanks for your replies! St. Joe's is wonderful!! It's nice and small! My graduating class has only 29 future nurses! We all try to help each other out! We get TONS of hands on, right from the start which I love!! I'm very excited for next semester!
Have you guys started clinicals yet? I know URI doesn't until 3 year if I remember correctly, how does it work for you? What classes are you going to be taking next semester?
Talk to you soon
PS Congrats on your new marriage Lauren!!
