My name is Lori and I just happen to find this web site while looking for another site. I thought that it would be a good idea to chat with other nurses around the country and view other opinions.
I have been a nurse for a little over 17 years. I have my initial degree as an ADN. I then went on to obtain my BSN and my PHN. I also have my med/surg certification as well as my certified legal nurse consulting certification.
I enjoy being a nurse. I have been in my current position for 6 years and I have been doing telephone triage for 7. Prior to telephone triage I worked on a post surgical unit which I realy enjoyed. Frankly, had I not gotten pregnant and had a hyperemesis I would still be there, simply because I enjoyed my unit that much. I really enjoy my current position as well, because I am able to do a lot of teaching, this is one of my favorite parts of nursing.
Wow that was enough.
