    Hello, all. I'm in an unusual situation. For the last 25 years I've been managing health care businesses, primarily rehab and Home Health. Tired of the constant pressure and travel and I now want to return to nursing part time but am concerned that there are no refresher courses in southern illinois where I live. Will anyone want to hire me after all these years? RN in Illinois

    Hi!

    I bet that you won't have any trouble getting hired - nurses are sorely needed! But I will refer you to the Illinois thread to see if they can better answer your questions. Good luck!

    hi zoeboboey
    i lived in long beach .........yes very different from central illinois
    long beach is a big city and clinton is rural town
    i love small town life
    i did take a huge cut in pay
    but i do not have to drive in any traffic

    thanks for the welcome

    mady :Melody:

    Ooooh Long Beach, cool! I imagine you must miss the water! But yeah, small town must be easier on the nerves, even with less money. Money is NOT everything! Time is essential, and peace is even more so!

    Take care!

    Hi There -

    There is such a need for nurses where you are! I wonder if they have sponsorship or anything like it.


    Try this thread and see if you can find any other options. I hate to think of someone who truly desires to be a nurse, being stuck with no way to do so! Take care!

    Below is the general international nurses' thread that might answer your questions, I hope so!

    Hello,

    I'm pretty new to this site. I'm 25 and changing careers. Well actually I'm going for a dual career. Medicine was always my 1st love (1st year of college) and then I changed major to Business Management and Finance. I live in NYC and after the whole 9/11 situation, jobs in NYC was very scarce. Currently, I'm in the mortgage industry and it's ok. But I'm leading towards Nursing b/c it's too late to be a doctor, so being a Nurse is the closest thing and more attainable. I'm starting my pre-req's @ NCC in LI, NY next Tuesday!! I'm very happy about that. Since I already have a BS and trying to get a BSN degree. What do you think? How as nursing been for you?

    Hey, welcome to the site!

    I really feel bad when I see all the threads from new people introducing themselves. There's just NO WAY that I could stop and post to each and every one of you!

    So I just wanted to say hey, how are you, and I hope you have a good experience!

    I'm 46, an RN trained in a diploma school in Maine (1981). I've done all kinds of nursing, my favorite being geriatrics, with Chemical Dependency a close second.

    I currently live in Maine, have a 17 year old son (who is just beginning driver ed, ugh!). I'm a Born Again Christian (3 years) but have to say that I am not one of those thumpers, LOL! How that happened is a long strange trip, I started out Catholic, tried all kinds of religion, no religion, etc. Then I ended up in AA (1985). I learned so much about tolerance, and the fact that God works miracles in EVERYONE's life, not just the "special" (wink) people.

    So along with being sober I've also had to deal with my mental health issues, depression/bipolar, anxiety, oh fun fun...

    SO - feel free to say hi, in this thread or through a private note! Happy you are here, lots of wonderful people! God bless! :hatparty:

    Feel free to post on this thread, and if I see you "around" I will say hello!

    HI THERE!~

    I know guys in their 60's starting med school so no, it isn't too late, if that is what you really really want to do!

    Examine your heart - if nursing is "settling", just don't do it. You will always be unhappy and eventually your patients and coworkers will know it


    To thine own self be true, dollink!

    Take care!

    I enjoyed reading posts from other nurses. I didn't realize the attitudes, positive or negative between LPNs and RNs until I read other threads. Well, as someone wisely put it in nursing school, "own what is yours." I'll post as I get the hang of this thing better. I'm a home health nurse and work 12 hour shifts, usually Wed.-Fri. or Sat. The long shifts plus commute time is insane but I love what I do.
    Thanks for the welcoming notes.

    I don't notice it among people that post here. But those who do post will refer to their job, and some of the events going on there.

    I've gathered a lot of valuable information in this forum so far, especially in the international section. It was about time I joined! It's an incredible place to be for nurses!
