I am a nurse. I was able to quit working in March to start Grad School. I am in my second class and feeling a bit overwhelmed.  I am happy to finally find a reason to go for my Master’s degree. The latest push for the Electronic Health Record has motivated me to go back to school. I believe I could work as a nurse consultant or whatever for another 20years!

School is overwhelming. I haven’t been in school since my BSN in the 90’s and a lot has changed…. Anybody else in this situation??? Hopeful yet and confident that I can still do this yet a bit shaky?
