I'm a newbe

  1. i'm new here and am not to sure how to get about yet. i've been an lpn for 35 years. boy! that makes me feel old. guess getting old is better than the alternative, right? i've done all but 5 of the excelsior courses for lpn to rn, asn. then i moved from ct to fl and need to get motivated all over again. ugh! now i'm doing hospice nursing and feel that this is where god wants to use me at this time. i love it! you're right where you're needed the most for the comfort and dignity of the patient and the support and compassion for the family. that's my story in a nut shell.
