Hello, I am new to this site, just joined tonight. I am a newer RN as of July 2004, single mom of two kids, it was a task going to school but i made it, so i offer some inspiration to single moms out there who just think it is impossible to go back to school. I love my job, I do home care for a small company in my hometown, pay is not all that great, but my patients sure are worth it. Offered assistant general manager of the company the day I became an RN. Tried hospital work, but I just cannot give up my ped patients. Glad your site is here, i have found some wonderful answers to all very good questions.
