This kind of assignment is better done in person where you can have an open dialogue which is probably the whole point of the assignment and to start making connections in the real world. Plus how do you know that we are who we say we are? Anybody could reply to this and not even be a nurse...

You are asking a LOT of anonymous people on the internet. I bet your instructor did not mean 'go post this on the internet' when he/she gave this assignment. There are over 3 millions RNs in this country. Go out and find one to speak with in person.
