    What do I do now? I am a cardiovascular surgical registered nurse. So my goal is to prep patients before their open heart surgery and when they come back post op to take care of them.

    My teachers they used to help me a lot because English is my second language and they really helped me with that and if there was something that I misunderstood they were always there to help me.
