    The explanation of short acting insulins does not match the slides. Slides are short acting and words spoken are for long acting

      Hey Jane, because we know many students struggled to make the payments and many were unable to join due to the cost, we recently modified our pricing. By removing Lifetime, we are able to reduce the cost by having all users on monthly payments options, and, more recently, have also been able to add an annual option, too! Our mission has always been to end the nursing shortage and, in order to reach that goal, we need to reach AS MANY nursing students as possible The last thing we want is for cost to be prohibitive to ending the nursing shortage! I hope that clarifies things for you but please reach out to us at [email protected] for more information. Thanks!
