A New Day
I must not forget my personal mission statement. Get adequate, secure, stable cash flow so my family can flourish. Obtain zero deductible, 100% payment insurance. Learn another highly marketable aspect of nursing to build my professional portfolio with, so I will be that much more lucrative in three years. Learn the entire perioperative world, learn what makes it tick, because I'm going to be running that son of a bitch in five years.
