Yay Wolfpack! Fellow Alum here with a BS in Zoology. In stranger news, I'm also a UT Alum with a MSN in Nursing. I swear I'm not stalking you or anything...

Awesome! I am a RN in the states and I work in pediatric public health. I have been very interested in doing something like that. How are you able to take that much time off and retain your job? As a state employee I have the ability to get donated volunteer leave from my coworkers (we get 26 hours a year and few use all that), so I've considered going that route as a medical volunteer.

That's not a bad idea, but getting splashed with blood is not high on the list for contracting HIV if that gives you any piece of mind.

Another nurse here - Bag Balm is good for severe dry skin, i.e. overwashed winter hands. It's made with lanolin. I've had a tin of it in my bathroom for like 10 years and it's still going strong. They sell it in the lotion section of CVS or Walgreens.
