Dec. 2011 I finished my last semester for my nursing degree. I was "pinned" as a nurse which is very traditional for nursing graduations. It was a small graduation, only about 40 people walked for my semester. I am not "officially" a nurse until I pass my state exam, the NCLEX. I am hoping to take it in January. I am grateful for everyone who has supported me over the past few years as I have gone through this journey of becoming a nurse. I appreciate everything that Cody, my family, and friends have done for me. Thank you!
