    Currently returned to CCT try Public Health. Alot of us older nurses work as PHNs. You coud think of teaching LVN students or the clinical portion of RN students.

    Yep I been at the top of the game, Flight for 7 years, after 15 years of nursing, I still hold three jobs. Trauma case manager, critical care transport nurse, and my newset job ED RN Clinical Nurse Educator. I must say you have a ton of experience why not spend it on some of the new nurses coming into practice? I remember doing the EMT and medic clinical training. The last thing I wanted to think about was being in a car accident and looking up and seeing a medic that I flunked in clincals, that some ma and pa ambulance hired. I know it can still happen, but there are going to be so many new nurses hitting the ER's soon.....One of these days the patient they care for might be you!!!
