    Hi, glad to be apart of allnurses. I've been a LPN for 28 yrs and have worked I guess in almost every area. I switched to another career(Residential Counselor) at a Group Home for trouble girls after feeling burned out and just wanting a change. I've been there at the group home for almost 9 yrs and now I want to come home , back to nursing. I know I'm out of touch with alot of my skills now and need some type of refresher course but, it's time and just connecting with allnurses has made the desire more intense. maybe someone can tell me or give me some idea where to get started again.

    Hey, welcome back! I hope it goes ok for you! Little skeery huh? Well I was out of hosp nursing for 10 years and when I came back it was like riding a bicycle. Some of the equipment a little different but it was actually pretty easy!

    Take care! Why don't you post on the nursing: general discussion and see if you get some more responses?

    Good afternoon Zoeboboey. I am VERY new to websites like this (threads etc) ~ hopefully I will soon get the hang of things!! I live in Hastings (UK) and I am almost at the end of my 2nd year nurse training. I am 42 and I have been married for 24 years. I have 3 sons (20,18,13). My ambition in life is to get through my training (in one piece!!) and one day we would like to live in Florida. Having been there 9 times it's kinda like 'home' already.
    Hope to see you around ~ very best wishes to you. kasc.

    I didn't know a thing about bulletin boards and all when I first came either! It's fun to learn!

    Good luck with school and may God bless all your plans!

    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 all great to find and join this site.

    I am asyou guessed new here. I am 45 and a RN for 22? years, some thing like that. I lost count. I am a nurse manager for a 40 bed unit in a NH in upstate NY. I have great staff, but suffering like most from a nursing shortage, as well as a CNA shortage. life is tough.

    I am married with 4 kids (20-10) 2 of each.

    NH for 5 years, Acute care for 11, and varied for the rest. (thinking at one time of leaving nursing but never gone for long)

    I look forward to meeting you all. in one way or another.

    Actually it is a 3 unit with 40 each, one rehab 1/2 and 1/2, the other only long term and the other dementia. We all have our challenges. Still small by some standards.

    I am about half way between Binghamton and Syracuse, small city called Cortland.

    I do have a very dear classmate that was from Horseheads. Never did get down to see her. Big family with farming, still has the farm from what I understand. She has very bad RA.

    Most of our night nurses are trying to retire and we wont let them go. I will take you :hatparty: in a heart beat!!!

    I dream of doing the traveling. DH is a big flyfisher and would love to take a tour in Alaska for 6 months. I need to dump my younger kids though! any takers?? they are just sweethearts kind thoughtful and listen to me closely :chuckle :chuckle they are my boys I would donate all my pay for any takers!!! (Did I make it sound to much like I am trying to get rid of them???)

    Why don't you read more of my posts before you decide to hire me (chuckle). As to the kids - boy I had ONE and he was pretty overwhelming - he's 18 now and I have a feeling I'm going to have to have him "removed" (as in, scraped off the computer chair)!

    Horseheads, my parents used to play pinocle in Horseheads with friends every week! I have been back to Elmira twice since we left there (I was 8).

    Well, I'm not looking to move anytime soon, but if I do, I'll let you know! Meanwhile - praying for you and your kids
