"Donna - please send me a private message with either the address or site to look at. Sorry - I have not mailed SH for a few months and forgot where to look :( My box is ready to go tomorrow - I have to work but my husband is off for…"
"Not much luck researching the Bake a Wish cake idea. I did look and it looks like it is about $50. to ship a cake. I would be willing to pick a month and pay to have a cake shipped if we decide to do that. For now - I am going to…"
"Another thought on the cake - would not be a traditional birthday cake though. You can get the pound cakes at Dollar Tree that are really pretty good. We could send canned icing and decorations/sprinkles and candles. I have also…"

Nice to meet you. My Son is currently in BC. He is probably finishing up his "p" days. Hard not hearing from him.
I am currently a RN working perdiem in local hospital. I am also finally finishing up my BSN. I am going to also complete my school nurse certification. Probably going to look towards middle school or high school. How do you like it compared to Hospital nursing?
What rating is your son? How has the Navy been to him?
I enjoyed Camp Nursing. If you are a Middle School nurse,you will be very comfortable with this job. It ranges from homesick kids to anaphylactic shock...you never know what the day will bring. It's very rewarding, but not in a monetary sense. I did it for many summers when my kids were at camp also.
Hi, we are on the Memphis too. I saw your post from March 7th. I understand you are looking for the Ombudsmans info, Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org and she can help you. Also the page you may have left comments on may be inactive, there is a new private blog for the families which she can give you information on, it is very recent and every question is responded to. Also, just a reminder to please do not discuss schedule info on any board, you never know who may be trolling:) . Hope all is well!
