Two years prematurely is hardly last minute, but whatever.
It was more than a couple, but OK.
Three undergraduate degrees, presidential scholarship recipient, BSN from a Top Ten school with a 4.0 GPA, CCRN, CEN certifications, TNCC, PALS, ACLS, BLS, preceptor, charge nurse and a multiple-time participant in a career advancement ladder and you think this has to do with not wanting to put in effort? Wow, OK.
I no longer have the luxury of time (i.e. youth) to take an entire year or more off of work and lose that income, plus take on the expense of an additional year of tuition. I figured that this would be obvious from my posts and I can't imagine why you seem so defensive/hostile? about this.
