Couldn't agree with you MORE Rena, re: "I like winning respect from difficult patients whom are fine tuned to body language- they are good teachers.." I am probably the only case manager we have who has the patience to deal with my OCD client who takes a half hour to get in my van and another half hour to get out...but does a killer Hannibal Lecter, performing lines from one of his favorite movies, the Silence of the Lambs...sometimes in the middle of the supermarket...! :-)

Hi Judig2009,
I am a registered traveling resthome helper in denmark- I work for my council servicing people too healthy to live in a resthome or don't have any desire to..
I have been working 11 years- and also cared for my own husband whom was a night dialysis patient for many years- when my oldest son leaves home- am returning to school. I can get more education on sheer work experience merit in denmark..
We can get paid to upgrade our education to nurse assistant then can take nurse education on merit of experience..
I work with all people from all works of life- returned home from hospital, mentally ill, terminal and we have a home for drug addicts whom are called homeless and can't do rehab. My special is heavy medical care-I hope to be added to a corps caring for a extreme ocd ALS lady in the near future.. This involves being in a rotation so she can't play us out against each other, she knows all the staff but we are mixed and matched so she doesn't have time to play on us and get us anti-against each other.. I love the complexity of this women- you have to like her to get in the door or she freezes especially our nurses out.. I like winning respect from difficult patients whom are fine tuned to body language- they are good teachers..

I am a RN in the Nashville, TN area. My experience is in general medicine, oncology, cardiology. Just in Nov. I started doing some travel nursing, and spent a month in Bethesda, MD.

I am again on the job hunt and this time the recruiters have been calling even before I have requested their help. Thinking about doing something a little more local right now, as the job market appears to be in a little better shape in the area that a couple of months ago.

Blessings,
Amanda, RN

I'm an ER doctor with a twist.....small town, so also a hospitalist,medical director of the ER, help occasionally in the clinic, nursing home rounds....oh, and did I mention ambulance service director? There are a few other minor hats, but that sums the biggest part of it up.

Unfortunately DDOORN..it's not really the case right now. Hospitals are holding back until the economy looks better...so the only jobs are in long term care (nursing home) or home health care. Not exactly great...but something will turn up...I have faith.. :-)

FINEARSESOON: love your name! Good luck on finding a job!

I'm a clinical social worker born & spent childhood in Chicago, moved around the tip of Lake Michigan into the SW corner of Michigan near South Bend, IN.

Moved out to New York State, Binghamton area with my DW and worked 23 years on the inpatient unit of a state psychiatric hospital and a few years ago totally switched gears to become an intensive case manager for the severe, persistently mentally ill...which means being a jack-of-all-trades in doing what I can to prevent rehospitalization for these chronic and often institutionalized mentally ill people.

Along the way I've been developing a part-time private practice as a psychotherapist as well.

Great thread to get started...thank you! :-)

“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
