“You give up your whole life to complete a "2 year" program. Everything has to be put to the side. Also if you are thinking about working and completing an Associates Degree in Nursing, reconsider this. It has given me a wonder career that I love, however in Alabama we are far under paid. May be worth it elsewhere.”
