One more day closer to retirement

  1. I have been in this profession a long time. I am able to retire at 56. Five and a half more years to go. I guess I'm just looking forward to doing something else. I have worked in the same government facility for over 20 years. Just need a break I guess.

    Try keeping your Nursing license active for a year or so. Do lots of other things. You may come back to the roost.

    Worked in the UK NHS for 35 years. Retired 3 months ago and do not miss it one little bit.
    No more unsupportive managers, no more abuse from patients, no more games/drama from colleagues.

    I love my retirement from nursing. When I look back on my career, I am appalled at how stressed I was all the time - dealing with unsupportive management, time constraints, abusive patients, and the mountain of paperwork. I love what I do now. I am able to teach people how to get healthy and stay out of the sick care system. And I get paid to do that.
