I was experienced in Nursing but I got a lot more experience when I came to job corps. I didn’t know how to do every skill properly, but after Mrs. Osbourne showed me how to perform every skill I’m confident that I will pass state board. Nurses make a lot of money and that’s one of the reasons
that many years is also a huge plus. Medical school sounds like an exciting experience.
