Michael Nightingale


FINALLY, Mike graduated from the University of Utah, as an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse and in other words, a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, and in other other words, he has his Master's Degree in Nursing. IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT THE HECK IT IS - HE'S DONE.......well for now:) Let's hope forever but what can he say....he's a Thomas. They sure love school!

I'm so proud of him. He is such a trooper. I don't tell him very often how proud and lucky I really am. Let's just say, I hardly saw him do homework. This is not because he didn't do it (as was the case in earlier years). He just made every single effort to spend quality time with his family. He would go to great lengths to make this happen often waking up at 3 in the morning just to complete his work. He graduated with honors, too. What a guy! He is so smart. I truly love him. He chose a career perfect for him. If any of you know Mike, you know this is true. He makes a perfect nurse and an even more perfect Psych Nurse. He has such compassion for others. He genuinely cares about them. In any circumstance, if I complain about someone, he tries to see the good in them. He will do a great job at his new job. Congratulations, Mike! "I luuuvvv you"
