I attended UNC Chapel Hill where I received my BA in EXSS. After working in clinical research for 5 years, getting married, having a beautiful baby girl and a handsome little man who was 2 months premature, I decided I wanted to become a NICU nurse. The nurses at CMC-NE were AWESOME with my son and I can't imagine a better profession. I only wish that I had known sooner that becoming an RN was my true calling. I'm completing my pre-requisites this semester and I'm hoping to be admitted into the ADN program at SCC or RCCC for Fall 2013. Good luck to everyone pursuing your dreams!!!

    Where do YOU sit in class?

    In the front! I'm partially deaf in my left ear and I want to hear everything. Luckily our lectures are recorded as well so we have the ability to rewatch them, but I prefer to catch everything I can while in class.
