a troll? or perhaps lazy... who knows.. it seems there are a lot of wanna be nurses that come on this site with very generalized questions that are better answered by a college counselor. and if they ever bothered to look at some older posts they could probably answer their own questions.
i'm so impressed at times by the patience of some of the nurses on this site. i just don't have it after working all day and seeing the billionth post of "what classes should i take now before starting my nursing program" and "what kind of personality does it take to become a nurse" :smackingf ... i swear i'm not a meanie and love to help but just take a look first!!! the general stuff is here!!!!
