Thanks for the write-up and comments by others. I have now made my mind up about pursuing a career in nursing. I just signed up with Excelsior for a BA in Nursing. I have nine years until retirement from the military at a WHOLE 37 years of age! I have been looking at nursing for a few months now. My girlfriend is an RN at a local VA hospital and she got me interested in the field. I wasn’t sure if this was the path to take at first. I want to help others when I get out and law enforcement was a good way to do that. But to be honest, I’m tired of getting shot at! As an RN, I can continue to help my fellow Americans without a weapon in my hand. Thanks again! Looking forward to joining the field!
