    How did you get into wound care? Did you need specific certification?

    Work 5 days a week?
    Oh, heck no!
    I like having days off during the week and try to avoid working more than 2 days in a row if I can help it!
    I do not want to get up and go to work 5 days in a row...

    No certification needed up front. I will be doing hyperbaric oxygen wound therapy and they provide training. I will have one year to become certified and will attend a week long intensive training program in Florida, all expenses paid by the company.
    Since I am a LPN my title will be Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Technician, then once certified, I will advance into a Safety Director position.

    Here is a website about the company for you to browse. They have openings in many states.
    Healogics - Comprehensive Outpatient Wound Care Management Services for Hospitals - Specialized Wound Care

    I've only worked in offices Monday-Friday 8:30-5:00 with weekends and holidays off and I love it! I have two kids so that's more important to me than hospital settings right now. I had one job, at an allergy clinic with walk-in allergy shots, that had odd hours and I hated it. I'd work Monday 8:30-5, Tuesday and Thursday 9-6:30, and Friday 8-noon. That doesn't sound too bad but if it was your night to close you'd stay a half hour past closing, so on Tuesdays or Thursdays you're getting out at 7 and had to be back the next morning at 7:15 or 7:45. I know that's what you can expect in 7-7 shifts, but it's not every day. I missed so much of my oldest son's school events and sports and that bothered me.

    As to the Halloween costume, I've got one. Picture it: black shoes, white socks, black pants, white shirt, black short jacket, black sunglasses--Oppa Gangam Style.

    I got a gig doing Case and Disease management for an IPA, and I love it. Monday-Friday 9-5 with an hour lunch, quarterly BONUSES! NO WEEKENDS OR HOLIDAYS! Still adapting to working 5 days a week though.
