So, I couldn’t leave well enough alone. I’m back at university, this time pursuing the somewhat elusive advanced practice nursing degree. Clinical Nurse Specialist to be exact. I was attending a reputable onliine program, but when my local university extended their application deadline, I decided on a whim to apply there. I wasn’t happy with my current school, and while I can’t say this will be better, they do set up clinical placements, so there is less begging.
