Do we even need this section? I'm not sure we do.

I removed a couple text boxes here. I would remove the video here as well. Hopefully in the future we could provide an RN to BSN video. Perhaps there could be another CTA down here that says "Explore your future with a career or admissions counselor" BUTTON: [Talk to a counselor] Or something like that?
