Yeah, nursing school did not give you cancer.

I'm so glad someone had the guts to say it first. To be able to fight and beat cancer, and then go on to make it through nursing school, that is truly an inspiration. I just wish that had not be ruined by the tabloid headline. :down:

Thanks for sharing.First of all, I never heard of nurses taking anything while in school. I can't even imagine trying to study with Xanax or anything like that in my system.

I'm wondering if you tell everyone all the medications you take? No? Well, that would be why you haven't heard of nursing student taking xanax. I'll admit I take it and I am a fully functioning individual while on it. Off of it? You're likely to catch me in a panic attack looking like some caged feral animal.
