what about a forum for disabled and/or retired nurses.?
i have been an r.n. for twenty eight years and i have done all types of nursingincluding teaching, management and consulting in most clinical areas...... including psych, home health, and as a consultant in a ltc with responsibility for advising the don, dds, and the mds coordinator. i have had mds 2.0 training.
now i find myself as a patient.i had to have a hip replacement in dec., 2006 (as a result of trauma in an auto accident). as an untoward and totally unpredicted effect, i suffered a stroke. i am struggling with aspects of my physical rehab and am in a wheelchair most of the time.
i am looking for a position as either mds coordinator, telephone advice nurse, or other position that i could do from wheelchair or from home.
