My Career as an RN - Its not over yet!!

  1. 5 I have been an RN for almost 25 years. When I first started nursing, I was gung ho. I worked at a teaching facility working Labor and Delivery. After 2 years, I moved to the Post Partum Unit, then worked as a nursing supervisor for 7 years. This was my favorite job of all.

    I worked part time for years after that, a little Labor and Delivery, PACU, Outpatient Surgery, Doctor's Offices, etc.

    I am now at a point in my life where I really want to do something different. I have interviewed for a position with a major pharmacy where I will be traveling the whole state. I will be training physicians, nurses, etc on how to infuse IVIG. I am so excited about this opportunity and hope and pray I will be offered the position.

    So there is light at the "end" of a long career! 10 years ago, I would not have been considered for this job.

    Good for you - as I have said before there are different jobs for different stages of our lives, and nursing presents opportunities I never thought about as a student (in the dark ages). I retired from research with big pharma, best job I ever had.
