    I'm so glad to hear that. I've been presented with so many opportunities since starting in the ICU. It's amazing, God is amazing.

    Thank you so much for your reply. I'm really both anxious (I know, anxiety won't add one minute to my life). At the end of the day if I can glorify Him in my work that's all that really matters.

    As long as I can remember I've always felt different but my goal is to be as humble as I can.

    The age difference between myself and the rest of my nursing class is about 9-10 years so it's been interesting for the last couple of years just in that regard alone. In some ways it's worked out and i've found that I became a mentor of sorts for several of my fellow students.

    I would really love to become a clinical instructor for a nursing program at some point. I enjoy teaching, its in my blood and runs in my family, the only time i'm not awkward (outwardly at least) is when i'm teaching. I think the role of teacher and mentor in some capacity is what i'm meant to do, kind of funny that God would gift me that way given my anxiety about social settings.

    Perhaps there is a lesson for me to learn in all of that. God's clever that way.
    I graduated from LPN school and Got my nursing license at age 55. I received a perfect attendance award, etc. I received a couple injuries during my clinical rotations, so I wanted to get the surgical repairs I needed in order to be in shape for my new career. However, things didn't go as planned. I became a patient instead. It began with a severe allergic reaction to niacin, and I was only taking a half dose of what was suggested in my nursing Drug Handbook. So I was forced to go on disability instead. I'm now a very happy Christian senior citizen. Sorry I wasn't able to provide more information for you. A suggestion for you though: Why don't you read my biography on my personal page. That will give you some insight about some career choices I have made.
