I've gotta vote 10, even without seeing the movie yet! I just finished nursing school, and guess who was one of my instructors? Yup: Jill Houston from the movie (that was her maiden name)! She's still an awesome nurse- I got to work one-on-one with her for 5 weeks and she taught me more than an entire year of classes could have! She told me her story and I had to do a search to find the movie since she's a bit modest. She told me about how all they really had was in packs around their waist- like bandage scissors, etc. I want to go into flight nursing but stuff like that has me a bit frightened, I guess that's something I'll have to get over.

Happy viewing!
