Explain your career path

I earned my BSN at SEMO and am currently a registered nurse and supervisor for my psych unit. To earn my RN, BSN I took two years of general pre-requisites (chemistry, anatomy and physiology being a few) and then spent 2 years in the nursing program. After graduating, I became a graduate nurse on a trauma and surgical unit. From there, I transferred to the psych unit. After spending a year on the psych unit and gaining some seniority, I was able to gain my position as a supervisor.
