I am a hospice nurse. I love it and hope I can spend the rest of my career doing it!

To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.

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!

Pediatric Nurse, mostly teach clinicals now. Prefer to adjunct. Tried full-time faculty; lasted long enough for contract to be ready and said, "No, thanks." Part-time only, worked full-time for first 5 years of career. Work 2 shifts a month at The Children's Center, a specialty hospital for medically fragile children.
PEDS ROCKS, adults not so much!!!!
Have MSN and a Faith Community Nurse also.

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 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.

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.

I'm a RN in a critical access hospital. Which means we do everything. I work Med/surg, ED and surgery center.
Before that I was a LPN working in a family practice clinic and doing urology specialty for 6 years.
I plan on going back to school this spring for my BSN and then maybe PA school!!

My stepfather was in a dementia unit the last months of his life. His LPN was a student I had contact with. His care of my stepfather was amazing. He took such pride in his work and in his care.

The care center was spectacular. They were responsive to my mother's needs. They took great care of my stepfather. When he died, there was not a single sore on his body. He was clean and cared for. He had lost weight because he was end stage and forgot how to eat, but he was cared for with the utmost care.

It is a challenge, but I want you to know how much good you do. Thanks.

Hi Everyone! I am a med/surg nurse - have been for 12 years. Currently teaching ASN students clinicals and working on my MSN in Nursing Education. I learn something new everyday whether it is in class, working my 12 hour shift on the weekends or just something about myself.

Hello all, RN in home health for 28 years. Currently Care Manager, certified home care coder, and Oasis specialist for local home health agency for 8 yrs. Hope to retire in about 3 years but plan to volunteer for local hospice.

I am interested in receiving Nutrition Certification. I have been on a mission for about year to improve my health, feel great, and enjoy life more. I know I must continue this for life to have quality of life.

If any of you know of a great Nutrition Certification program, I would appreciate hearing about it. I am currently enrolled in a Nutrition class with the Cooper Institute. A good program but I am seeking a little more in depth program.

Best wishes to each of you!!

Ahh the joys of our jobs right? I am a LPN in a private practice Urogynecology Office in Upstate New York. We only work with Women and their Gyn and Urology problem. It is a Sub-specialty of Gynecology and Urology. Very interesting field. I am currently in School for my RN now. When I finish, I hope to work L&D until I get my FNP.
