    My great grandma was a nurse way back when, I think she was born in the 1890s. Anyway, she was the head nurse at a local hospital, and she took home six babies without adoption papers or anything like that. My papas birth mom was a teenage mother and asked her if she would take the baby and she did.
    Wow! That is amazing. I'd probably be the exact same way, taking home every unwanted baby until I was living like the old woman in the shoe... LOL

    is there any company that covers correctional nurses for liability insurance? I too had NSO, only to find out this specialty is not covered.
    Whoa!!! Good to know...

    I have done elementary and high school. I will never, ever go back to elementary!

    I love little ones, but I don't want to be responsible for hundreds of them each day. Too much neediness, and the teachers in elementary are insane! The big kids are fun. It's nice to be able to actually converse with them.

    My big kid was born at 29 weeks: One pound, 13 ounces. Thirteen inches long... What a sick little guy he was! He is going to be 13 years old in December! He's the one I yell for when I can't figure out my phone...

    I'm going to need one of those shirts, too! LOL

    And on the back of my shirt it will read: "Did you eat breakfast this morning? Do you need to use the bathroom?" For all of those tummy aches...

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again...

    LTC is TOUGH! I did it a long time ago, for about 3 months. I ended up going back to the hospital. I couldn't stand the endless med passes, lack of resources, constant short staffing, etc. I missed patient turnover, and seeing new faces. While I was there, I met some nurses that were absolutely made for it. They did their jobs so well, and clearly loved it. It really takes someone special to be able to do LTC.

    I went from a hospital to the LTC center. I'll admit that I was sure it would be "easier". It was different, but not at all easier! Like I said, I hightailed it back to the hospital! LOL
