Nurse Gigi - Then and Now!

THEN & NOW



 I did it!!!  Today, I finished nursing school.  It has been a crazy 16-months, but it is here - I finished my last final this morning.  The champagne is chilling in the fridge. 
 
It turns out my new nursing career was foreshadowed many moons ago.  My mom searched through her old pictures and gave this to me as an early graduation gift.  Apparently, I played "The Nurse" in an elementary school play - Go figure!!!

THANK YOU to everyone who supported me through this journey - Scott, the kids, my mom, my in-laws, my sister and brother in-law, my aunt, my friends, and all my UNC-CH classmates. I wouldn't have made it without you.

So what is next? A much needed break.  I plan to do all the fun things I have put off while I was in school.  After that?  Passing my licensing boards in June, followed by a job in the Cardiac ICU in July.  Yup, I really am going to be a nurse!
