I am so grateful for the GAP program. Without it I would not be where I am today. I have been a stay-at-home mom for 20 years with an inactive nursing license. I never thought I would be able to go back to nursing. The only way I was able to do the refresher course to get my license back was through the GAP Assistance program. Now I am working full time as a pediatric nurse and I am loving it! Thank you so much!
