  1. I dont know if anyone has talked about this but did you hear about that lady on Oprah who was graduating from med school at Yale! She started when she was 40 WOW. I need to stop complaining about nursing school

    Yes,
    I agree it is wonderful that she followed her dream.

    However, what was more wonderful was that Oprah Winfrey said "Cheers to You" to all the pediatric oncology nurses who worked with a little boy named Charlie.

    Oprah said she loves nurses and they do not get paid enough.

    Hmmm...I'd like to get paid like Oprah. Wonder what she thinks nurses should get paid. I think 10% of her salary would be great!
    She is an AMAZING woman. I have a great deal of admiration for her.

    Love Oprah!! I emailed her and told her she needs to do a show about nurses. Haven't heard anything back (big surprise!)
