and, i think that as of now, i am considering the following for education:
perhaps nursing at langara. but, who knows.
so, that lasted about 3 days. then i found this direct-entry 3 year master's applied program in nursing at McGill, in Montreal. It also has a option to focus on global health nursing. *Ding!* i have always wanted to live in montreal, or go to mcgill. even since i was in high school.
