Default Great news!!!!!!!

Just got a call from DD who is a freshman at the University of Tampa. She was just accepted to their School of Nursing for the next three years (or more) of her college education. This is something she has wanted to do since she was about 8 years old, she's now 18. She would like to specialize in either labor/delivery, infant special care or pediatric nurse. We are very proud of her. I just had to the share this great news.

Congratulations. My niece and my sons girlfriend are both headed off to nursing school in the fall. My niece wants to be a surgical nurse and the sons girlfriend wants to be a pediatric nurse.

I'm sure she will be a wonderful nurse. I wish her all the best.

I just heard in a recent poll that nurses are the most respected position. More power, too, her, and if she can hang in there she should have a career that will both give her satisfaction and provide her with good support for many years. Good for her, and good wishes to you! Lynne

Congratulations to her! That is wonderful news and with the ever increasing shortage of nurses she should never want for a job.

Regards,
Thomas

Congrats to her AND you! I understand why nursing is the most respected profession - they have my vote for some of the hardest working, most dedicated people around.

Thanks everyone for all your positive feedback. We are very proud of her. She has worked very hard to get to where she is. (she is even going to take credit classes over the summer break) She is a wonderful daughter and is very patient and understanding to others needs. Guess she picked the right profession.

Lisa K--congrats to you and to your son. Where has he decided to go? Our son is also at the University of Tampa, (New England kids in Florida) majoring in Sports Management with a minor in criminology. (never thought the two went together until all this steroid stuff) All the best to your son in whatever he decides.
