    I’m hyped about this and curious as to what great info they will be discussing! Unfortunately I will be in the middle of a class. Will they be providing students with a link to watch a video?

  2. Isaac says:

    There is no wonder why there is a shortage, especially if most schools only accept a limited number of students, into most nursing programs. Even good students get left out of most programs, due to the competitive nature of the program itself. Where is the common sense in that? Is there a wonder why there is a “shortage”?
