Hello, other non-traditional students!
I am newly enrolled to finish undergraduate studies so that I can pursue a second career in law. I was a practicing nurse up until about three years ago, when my life changed drastically. I was injured by a physician in a manner that prohibited me from continuing to practice nursing. After spending three years studying under my fabulous lawyer, I came to the conclusion that I wanted to leave medicine behind entirely and, hopefully, someday help others who are put in the same situation I was. I am very fortunate to have my schooling paid for - it was written into my settlement - and to have a job offer waiting for me when I successfully complete my schooling.
I have an ADN, so I will be spending the next two years at Evergreen State College in beautiful Olympia, Washington, where I will turn my associate's degree into a Bachelor's of Arts and Sciences in Medical Public Policy and Law. I am glad to meet all of the other adults here wading through a sea of people younger, quicker, and waay more energetic that we might be!
