Wanted to Introduce myself

  1. Hello, I am knew to this site and was glad I found it. It will be nice to meet and talk with other nurses here. I am a geriatric nurse which I find challenging and fulfilling. We can always learn something from our elders. I am working in AR where I have lived all my life and love to travel the beautiful state.

    Welcome aboard! I used to live in Avoca, near Rogers. It is a wonderfully beautiful state.

    My introduction did make it sound like I could have been a geriatric nurse:chuckle , but
    I meant to say I am in geriatric nursing. Sometimes I do have the same complaints as my elderly patients,but am a few years away from retiring and I do have a young soul. Thanks for your reply it was funny.

    Thank you for the welcome note. If I had the time and money I would travel the world. Since my time and money is limited I find it fun to travel in my own state can be relaxing and interesting. I especially like the mountains in North
    Arkansas.

    I like the area around Rogers I lived in Fayeteville for a couple of years and
    explored the area every chance I got. I don't remember a place named Avoca though, so I guess I didn't explore long enough. That gives me another place to go check out.

    Yes they do tug at my heart strings, and I love it. Never met anyone over 62 I didn't like It can be challenging at times, but it has taught me to have patience.
