  5. You can RETURN your student debt!
    Mine triples in December. Yes, 3x per month what it is now. I wouldn't mind a bit--if I could find a job in my field. But as an Occ Health RN--since manufacturing is largely dead, I am worried.

  8. I passed NCLEX (and here's what I did)
    Hi Nu. I hope you don’t take offense, and I do not mean to be judgmental but I have seen this before. My guess is that English is not your native language. The structure of your native...

  9. I passed NCLEX (and here's what I did)
