2bEsqtoRN, apparently I can't receive PMs since I haven't responded to enough posts on here yet, but what did you want to know? I'm 26 and have a BA in psychology from Williams College. I went straight to grad school and got my Masters in social work from Columbia in 2010. Since then, I've been living in New Jersey and trying in vain to find a job in social work. I'm currently working retail, and actually the unintentional "break" has been really good, since it helped me realize that I want to go into nursing. I don't have any experience in hospitals or medical settings, which makes me a little nervous, but I do have experience dealing with stressful situations where you have to make important decisions right away (I interned in the Bronx and in Harlem when I was a social work student). If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!
