    Hey Lorenzo, thanks as well for posting your interview answers. I learned a lot and I'm glad I stumbled upon this site. I've spent hours reading posts so far and haven't made a dent I'm sure.

    Someone kindly sent me a response via Private Message so that's all of the interviews I need. Thanks again to all of you. I very much appreciate it.

    Oh, and yes I'm sure not having your name etc. won't be a problem. I'll explain the circumstances.

    Hi, I'm a new Nursing student. My classes start in a couple weeks and I need to complete 3 informational interviews with some nurses that wouldn't mind taking the time to do so. Many of the questions I'm personally curious about so I definitely good reason to do this. I just hate to bother people who are actually at work in the hospital etc. I really don't think I even know what I'm getting myself into, so this should help.

    Many thanks to those that can help with this.
