Nursing Stud...ent

  1. Hiya,

    I am a newly accepted student in the accelerated BSN program at the University of South Alabama. I am an EMT, former firefighter, US military vet, and best of all...a daddy times 3. I've been married for 11 years this February and with the support of my wife, I am continuing this transition towards my second career. Heck I'm only 32 and have quite resume under my belt, but I have always wanted to work in emergency medicine (not just a first responder). I am interested , as I am sure alot of people are, in becoming a flight nurse, which coincides with my prior experiences. Well anyway, hello and Happy Holidays.
