AmyChelle, welcome to DC. Good for you for not giving up on your dream. About becoming an RN...Whether you take the "express" bus, or the "local', the important thing is that you get to where you're supposed to be. I, too, share your passion for cooking. I don't think I need another gadget... Well, perhaps a large balloon whisk. But, that should be it for a while. I love cooking.. When I have something on my mind, I get in the kitchen and "get lost in the sauce", so to speak. I enjoy the journey more than the final destination.
Thank you, AmyChelle, for answering the "call" to be a nurse. I honor the commitment and professionalism of so many who have cared for me over the years. Nursing isn't something a person does for a living, it's a "calling" just like the ministry. And those who are "called", bring such comfort to those they care for. They don't pay nurses enough.
