    Congrats!! That is really exciting. What class/area are you going to be teaching?

    Congrats again and I hope you keep your enthusiasm high. Excitement about nursing and teaching is missing in many schools nowadays! Good luck!

    I got me a new field CM job, for worker's comp! WoooooHoooo!

    My supervisor to be said I was honest and sincere in my interview, and that was what she liked! So, from now on I say, don't play it too safe, be yourself. Being too stiff and giving those rote answers cost me the last interview!

    Special thanks to Dynamic! For some great advice!
