introducing myself

  1. Hi, I just want to introduce myself to you all. I am starting my nursing program at Mt. Saint Mary's next month, and I am very excited. I decided to change careers at the age of 39, and I am now 41. I have finished my prerequisites, and I am ready for nursing school. I would appreciate any advise you have to offer me. I know I will enjoy learning from all of you with experience.

    Thanks,
    katie
