  1. Nursing with awkward introverted personality

  9. Hi everyone! I have been a nurse for five years! I had a daughter who was ten months old when I started nursing school, worked part time through it and graduated top of my class. Got my BsN online while she was 3. So I feel like I can handle a lot!! ...
