GradSchools: How did you go from being a registered nurse to becoming a nurse administrator? What were some of the challenges of this transition?
Elena Rom: I think this might have been the hardest part of the whole process, because you have to work to get experience while also learning on the side to really enhance your career. Personally, I was working 2 jobs at the same time to make everything work.
