  6. You paid HOW MUCH for nursing school??!!
    I have never been in the armed services I don't know where you got that VA bit. I didn't say I get money from the VA. I work and pay for my education myself, with a LITTLE help from my employer.

  18. Fired....What now?
    I agree Isabelle, you work there for 6 months, only to be fired in your first 24 hours of un-assisted employment? Seems like we're not getting the whole story. If we are -- then that's really sad.
