👩⚕️ HI I’M CATHY PARKES 👩⚕️
I’m here to help you Level Up! During my time at CSUSM’s Accelerated Bachelor’s of Nursing program, I helped my fellow classmates who were struggling with the exam, pass and graduate. After receiving my BSN I went on to become an RN at Scripps Encinitas Hospital. As more and more students reached out to me for help, I decided to start this channel to help people across the world, LEVEL UP.
