Last week Jessie tempted fate by taking her board certification for nursing on Friday the 13th . This mother of all tests is given on a computer, has 275 questions and can take up to six hours to complete! She found out Monday that she passed her test and is now a full fledged registered nurse. Jessie graduated this winter with an associates degree in psychology and a nursing degree. She is employed at Montefiore Hospital, part of the UPMC Health System. Good Luck Jessie and keep up the good work. We couldn't be more proud of you!
