    I'm not sure this is in the right place but here goes: I've been a nurse since 1979, in the same system. Moved around a lot within the system but loved ICU the best. I was "let go" in January and took time off for myself. Now the only thing I want to do is ICU. I will be 60 tomorrow. I've had 3 back surgeries, recent double mastectomy. Realistically I can't go back to ICU. I've always been a nurse but can't even think about going to the floor. The floor nurses have it so hard - unrealistic expectations. So...I'm looking at something I can do that is non-clinical, maybe even out of the hospital altogether. Would love something online. So fellow nurses, anyone who can relate +/or provide words of wisdom? Thanks in advance.

    What about working for an insurance company? I would imaging they would love your years of nursing experience in general, and your critical care experience in particular.

    Hi I am currently in a nursing program where the instructor has literally been verbally abusive to me constantly embarrassing me in front of patients and I couldn't take it anymore and walked out of clinical . Now I realize I made a horrible decision and want to talk to the dean about her behavior and why I walked out of clinical. Have anyone had a similar experience. Will I be banned from the program??

    Sunshine, you may want to start a new thread, you're kinda hijacking someone else's post here.

    Home health is kinda slow paced and hospice
    I always cringe when I read that hospice and home care are "slow paced."


    I personally found home hospice care to be overwhelming.

    In home care/hospice, you're driving all over the place in bad traffic and weather, with your cell phone ringing every couple of minutes, and the amount of charting is overwhelming.

    I returned to acute care hospital nursing, and find it more doable for me than hospice, home-care or LTC.
