1. Hi, I'm not a nurse or in nursing school yet..I am a senior in High School (homeschooled) I plan to become an RN, or an LPN if anything..just want to help people. I am 17 and live in KY. The reason why I joined here, is I really want to be a nurse, but i dont think i know everything i need to know, so I figured I could get some help from here.
