It was 1996 and I got hired to work at an inner-city community clinic fresh out of Nursing school. I LOVED that place! Learned so much there and got to do a lot- pediatrics, pre-natal, teen clinic...spent almost 4 years there before going to Grad school to get my NP in pediatrics.
Med-surg 6p-6a in a 24 bed unit in a critical access hospital. I learned a lot, and worked with a great group of nurses and CNAs. I started cross-training to the ED after 1.5 years on med-surg and ended up taking a full-time 11a-11p position in the 7-bed ED at the same hospital. I worked with some really awesome nurses there, too.
Oops- forgot to mention this was in 2006. Nursing is a 2nd career for me.
