“At an age when most people are settling comfortably into mid-life, Bevin Kirsch decided to take on a challenge that many would find daunting – an entirely new career. She decided to go back to school to become a nurse.
Kirsch enrolled in Beckfield College and is working toward an associate degree in nursing. She is hoping to land a job in oncology when she graduates, something she developed an enthusiasm for while working as a phlebotomist collecting blood plasma for cancer patients in a previous job.”
