Hi Everyone
This is a most interesting forum, to hear from other nurses. I have been thinking of taking classes on the internet but just kept putting it off. Guess your never to old to learn.

Yeah this forum is great. Hello all, I hope I can learn lots from everyone.

cmpadt: I would suggest you spend time on your english because until you master that you might have trouble getting hired in the U.S. Best of luck to you!

Welcome nurses, feel free to post an introduction here.

Hi all. I'm an RN, BSN in New York. Although travel nursing sounds quite interesting and exciting, it's not an option for me at this time due to family and other obligations. I've been a nurse for many years and have worked in many specialty areas including Home Care; Geriatrics; and MR/DD in a residential school and treatment facility. Currently I am employed as an RN Instructor teaching a Certified Home Health Aide course for a privately owned Home Health Care agency. Teaching is interesting and fun; I might even consider teaching a Certified Nursing Assistant course at some future time. I do find that I miss working directly with patients though and am also thinking of taking some certification courses such as IV certification; wound care; etc., so that I can do some fee-per-visit work. I'd love to open up a home care agency of my own but first I have some other matters re my personal non-professional life I must attend to before I can address that dream. I have no immediate plans to retire; in fact the thought of total retirement is a long way off for me if ever. I'd probably be bored stiff and chomping at the bit to return to work even if I did.
Smile Well I think I've written enough for an intro. Although I've plenty more to say, best to save it for another time. Don't want to use all my most interesting chat up on the first go.

Just thought I would sign up and say hello, it's always good to talk to other nurses out there. I've been a TNS all my career and finally burned out. Am doing Occupational Health and Safety now. Needed a change of pace. Razz

Hi all, I am glad to have found this board...to post question and chat with a)nurses I don't see everyday, and b)friendly people who understand my career!
I am a med/surg nurse in WI, going on 4 years. I was a CNA for 5 years before this. The hospital I work in now is our regional trauma center. It is also part of the Hospital Sisters Health System...anyone else work in one of these facilities (I believe there are about 13 of them, in the midwest). I have training as a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner, but did not keep that job...it was too much in addition to my other one (and my boss was difficult!).
Glad to be here!

new person on board
I'm a Canadian RN, work in ICU for many years, wanting to travel. I'm trying to find companies that offer 4 week assignments to give it a try. Any suggestions out there, would like to get away from the cold and snow so am thinking of Arizona, California, Florida. Help please anyone?? Debbie

Glad to have you kellyd. I believe most travel assignments are 13-14 weeks, if your interested in that I know a few places you could check for assignments.

Re: Welcome to nurse-forum.com!

I am from Canadian and looking to go traveling. My first location I would love to visit and work at is Hawaii. It's cold up here and I need some sun!
I'm currently working on an orthopedic unit. Hope to meet some new people in my travels.
