  7. Any School Nurses out there who travel abroad every yr during the summer?
    haha! I wish!! Nope. I work 2 days a week at my PRN hospital job, and spend the rest of the summer with my littles. They go to school in the same district I work in, so we have the same days off :)

  20. How much of your cohort did you "lose"?
    I have an ASN, and graduated in 2011. At my very first Fundamentals class, there were 19 of us. 4 of us graduated on time. Most went on and graduated eventually. A few dropped/failed out permanently.
