New to the board but not to nursing.

  1. Hey everyone, like the title says I've been around nursing for a while, about 23 years to be exact. I'm currently working with developmentally disabled in NY. But I've done just about everything else. Prison nursing, which lead to a 5 year disability (fractured L4 L5 in a little scuffle) I'm lucky I'm walking. Night supervisor in a 500 bed hospital. ER, ICU, CCU, Med Surg. Before nursing I was a Hospital Corpsman 2nd class in the Navy, and also had my Paramedic certification. On the personal side, I'm divorced, but now living and engaged to a wonderful caring younger lady and have 3 grown girls, 1 grandaughter and another on the way. The oldest is a school teacher, the middle one works for the county govt. and the 3rd and youngest works at the same center I do as a program coordinator but is attending nursing school. Believe it or not, I found this board by doing a google search for a price on trach care kits and a post came up for this forum. Well that's it for now and if anybody wants to pick my brain (what little I have left):smackingf go at it. Howie
