Hello, New here

  1. Hello, I am JoAnn a 42 year old married mom of 2 boys. I live in Iowa, and have been a nurse (LPN) for 15 years now. I started out my work in a private sector, a Convent, being a new nurse, greatly enjoyed working with the nun's, but due to the high demand, and better pay, I went out to the public sector and got a job in a nursing home. I had always wanted to become a nurse, it was a drive of mine from a very young age, and when my mother passed away when I was 14, and I was unable to do anything to help her, I was even MORE determined to become a nurse. I work full time second shift in a small nursing home of 81 beds. I have been there for almost three years now. Life will be changing there as we are now venturing into the "skilled" care sector.
    Thank you for allowing me to be part of this group!
