Iam a working mother of 4 boys. I earned my certificate in Nursing while in High School ...but never Graduated. In the next couple months I will be going to this amazing school to earn my GED. Shortly after that I plan to return to continue in my Nursing career further. What I like the most about this College is the super flexible schedule ...for my bizzy schedule. Also its located just 10 minutes from my home and job!I'm so excited and can't wait to get started! I'm 32 yrs old...and I'm here to tell ANYONE its NEVER to late to get back on track with the way you want your life to go!
