I apologize for the inconveniences it caused.Nursing is and will always be my most cherished profession and believed me, I can’t do anything to bring down a profession I stand everywhere to defend with my very last strength. I’m a strong advocate of professionalism in nursing, a strong voice against quackery.You can check my Facebook page on my Name and see my previous posts on Nursing Advocacy.I hope this apology gets to you all in sound mind.Thanks,
