My husband has been extremely supportive. It's been a real, 'You go, girl!' chain reaction.

Both hospitals are constantly asking for more people. Of our graduates, 98 percent have jobs waiting for them, and most of them get jobs here locally.

I'm outraged. The whole community is outraged because they can't be in the games and because of the continued destruction of the program.

I thought if anyone can help me with this project, that has the time, creativity and crazy comedic slant on it, this is the person.

The issue is the wages that educators make. We can't compete with what a master's degree-prepared nurse can get in the private sector.
