My name is Kristen. I am an RN and have been a nurse for 30 years. 5years ago I was laid off from Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage, CA. They let most of us Supervisors go related to the budget. They hired 2 for 1 specials. Oh well. I have plenty of stories to tell and have now been a traveler for 4.5 years. All over California, San Francisco to Blythe and South Lake Tahoe. I have no family and even less friends. I was in the Army for a while, loved the 109th. I have 2 dogs, rescued of course, a blonde German Shepard and a red headed Border Collie. Let me know if I can help anyone.
What other areas are you interested in?
I am Kristen. I have had a few experiences with pts who a drug seeking and a few who are deceptive. I worked at the Betty Ford Center. I have found that being honest about your goals for them and finding a common ground for their expections of us relieves some of the emotional crap. Good luck. Kristen

I’m Natalie and I’m considering going into nursing as a new career. I’ve been researching a lot over the past few months to see which areas interest me most. I’m quite keen on mental health nursing at the moment, as it’s something I’m quite passionate about. I’ve found it really useful hopping onto forums like this to get an understanding of peoples experiences in nursing, and making sure it’s the right path for me!
Good day everyone, I am a LPN with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing, a Master of Science degree in Health Science and now I am working on my PhD in Medicine... I became a nurse quite young (in my 20's) over 4 years ago and I am still very young. I am a travel nurse so I move around often. One thing that I hope to gain from this community is career enrichment advice that will benefit me through the years. I have no favorite movies or shows because there's too many to choose.lol I hope you are all as proud and pleased to be a Nurse like I am.... Ttyl!

Hi there, I’m a BSN-RN in Virginia. I broke into nursing with a year in med surge with a wonderful powerhouse of a trainer to kick me into gear. I then moved into my passion, behavioral health, spent 1.5 years doing inpatient and 2 with Henrico County PACT. I stepped away following concurrent PTSD and post-concussion syndrome diagnoses. It’s now been 2 years, and I’m hoping for some advice on how to get back to it after what feels like forever. Also just love sharing nursing stories, and supporting other nurses! I’m hoping this community is positive and there are no bullies.
Horror movies, trashy reality shows, Simpsons nerd - I’ve seen every episode up to season 13… multiple times.
My name is Daniel and i just enrolled in WCU to finish up my BSN. My whole life I have wanted to help my local community and nursing for me is the best way to do so. Im excited to become apart of a diverse and intellectual group such as yourselves. Happy Wednesday
Hello. My name is Eric. I was a CNA for 6 years (1992-1998) and a medical lab tech (MLT ASCP) for three after which I went into I.T. for a huge salary increase at the time.
I’ve recently become a CNA(lite) at a local facility,. I am an NAC/“hopitality” aide. So there are legally a lot of things I cannot do until I am fully certified again.
I am an older (50+) male but I find I still enjoy the work, and am looking forward to the training. It seems like CNA’s are able to legally do all the things we used to do, and then some! And nurses are critically needed right now. My plan is to become a CNA again, then take up offers on all the free training available to become an LPN, and from there who know?
