I am a new Adult Nurse Practitioner (graduated last year), and I currently work with a socioeconomically disadvantaged geriatric population providing them both primary and urgent care services. Prior to completing my NP, I was an OR Nurse (circulating, scrub) for 7 years with a focus on GYN and GYN oncology. I also completed my RNFA (registered nurse first assist), and I have worked with both Urology and GYN surgery as a first assistant! Assisting is so much fun and I truly miss it! I love the patients that I currently serve, but hope I can find a position some day that will be a good balance of OR and office visit time with an oncology focus. I would also like to teach BSN students. Until then, I'll soak up all the learning experiences I can!

I am an unemployed nurse. I have worked with primarily adult cardiac patients. Somehow, I happened into management -- not once but, twice. I am currently considering transitioning into Pediatrics.

I am a Licensed Practical Nurse. I passed my NCLEX on January 28, 2013 and I've been working at a long term care facility since February 26, 2013. This is my first full time job and I am 36 years old. It has taken a lot of adjusting and has been very stressful but I do love my job.

We do need to nurture our new nurses. Or at least stop eating them and accept their presence and differences! I am a Perinatal Nurse who also has my MSN to teach new nurses. I can get really bad on the floor some days depending on who is working. My thought is I want to make sure the new nurses can take care of me someday. I don't want to breed resentment and animosity so they do not take care of their "older generation"!

I know what you mean, I did Critical care (ICU) for over 25 years. Then, things changed, our work tripled, the new staff we not experienced and we were written up if we stayed late to complete our charting, etc. . . . I am doing rehab at the local VA and just love the work. My guys are an inspiration to work with. This is my last job before I retire.

I did Hospice Nursing for about 18 years before I made this switch. the patients didn't burn me out. the company, and the amount hours we had to do at the end to do the same job for triple the patients just killed me.

Hi! I am a Hospice nurse for about 8 years now. Before that I was in Quality Insurance and med-surge at a local hospital. Nursing was not a career I had wanted or inspired to get, it just sort of happened. However I am grateful to have it in this day & age. I will always be employed!

Hi there! I'm an LPN working in Labor & Delivery providing NRP to the newborns and also post-partum couplet care. Love it! Been in L&D since 2010 when I graduated from my PN program. I'm also currently enrolled in school working toward my RN and will hopefully, someday graduate! BLAH!!! The whole work/school fulltime thing is no fun, as I'm sure many of you already know!! I generally do 12 hour night shifts but we flip flop sometimes and I'm stuck being awake during daylight hours. :) I spent about 9 months in Long Term Care facilities between two L&D jobs and that was hell! Thankful for the job I have now!!

I am a Pediatric nurse on a medical-surgical unit that specializes in the following: Ortho/Trauma, Nephrology, Neurosurgery, Urology, Neurology, Endocrinology, Rehabilitation, Renal Transplant and Stable Ventilator patients.

We joke about it's pretty much "everything under the sun". emoticon Like all Med-Surg units, we get the overflow when we have beds. Before entering the kiddo world, I was an adult nurse on a progressive medical - pulmonary unit.

I am a medically retired RN after 35 years in nursing. I worked Med-Surg, Surgical ICU, Army Health clinic, ICU/CCU, Cardiac Cath Lab, Cardio-Pulmonary Rehab and Interventional Radiology, I loved working with my fellow nurses but mostly I enjoyed teaching and educating my patients so they could better advocate for themselves in their health care.

I'm nursing faculty in a two year program with a background in med/surg. My love is working with post-op patients.

Blessed be.

I am a retired/disabled Pediatric Neurology Rehabilitation Home Health RN. Whew! That was long. Lol. I retired after 30 great and exciting years from a very bad back and Rheumatoid Arthritis/Autoimmune disorder. During those years I also worked at the children's hospital on the Neuro/psych floor, spearheaded the homehealth department at a local hospital working in quality assurance

Bless you all!

A good one! I'm a psych nurse (behavioral, mental health) at an outpatient clinic associated with a multi-state health system. I love the patient education I do, whether it's about meds, mental health diagnoses, or just plain life in general. I'm committed to ending the stigma associated with mental illness.

"If you wanna be somebody else, if you're tired of fightin' battles with yourself, if you wanna be somebody else, Change Your Mind." Sister Hazel, from "The Fortress" CD.

I am stronger than the food.

I am not that person any more.
