Hello. to all. I am a 7p charge nurse on a very busy telemetry unit. I'm looking for other charge nurses who have invoked "safe harbor" in Texas, or in other states if applicable. I have run the entire gamet of nursing: from CNA, student nurse, RN, CN, Manager of Pedi, Tele and Med/Surg units, traveler, staff and now Charge Nurse again. I have always loved nursing and even tho' I've worked in some horrible situations I have never minded going to work. I went into nursing to make a difference and plan to continue with my goal until I retire. I am looking forward to working with the NNOC/CNA to pass legislation for safe RNatient ratios in Texas. My 3 children are adults and have given me 5 super grandchildren. My life has truly been blessed.
