Sorry that the new gig didn't work out, I hope this will cheer you up some. Or see below, if you prefer the other version. (((Virtual hugs))) my friend. Enjoy retirement!

Thank you, Hoosier. I am honored.

I had previously stated that I was trying on retirement for size. It seems to be fitting rather well. However, I still want to put feelers out for some part time nursing job, as I am not sure that I'm ready to give it up entirely yet.

Thank you for being my friend and helping me get by. That album came out in 1967 when I was ten years old. I remember hearing it on KXOK 63AM, the best rock station in the St.Louis area in the 60's.

Wasn't Joe Cocker's version the theme for "The Wonder Years"? A show about a kid in the 60's?I saw it a couple of times.

Speaking of the 60's and TV, I was working on a comic yesterday that involved the 1960's TV show "Lost in Space". I added a 1951 song by Luke the Drifter:

Thanks again, Hoosier!

you are correct about Joe Cocker's version being the theme for The Wonder Years. I think I watched it once or twice, I'm not big into TV...

keep up the visual enhancements. While they're good for your sanity, they are for mine as well!

If you're looking for part time or PRN, why not try home health? I'm sure that you've got skills, and you can limit to what you want-when I worked home health in my area, I would only do admits on Tuesdays and Wednesdays between 10a-4p. On Thursdays I did wound care...you can make it whatever you want it to be

That is a great idea, Hoosier! I worked Home Health back in the 90's and hadn't considered that! There's a couple of agencies in Anomaly which is adjacent to my hometown of Goofy Illinois!

There's also hourly (private duty) home care and you REALLY drive your own schedule in that world. With the right client it's hardly like 'work' and the paperwork compared to visit home care is a fraction.

Excellent suggestion MMJ! I've done that line of work and like traditional home health, you really do drive your own schedule, and a good client match is more like hanging out with a friend than work

@Davey Do, I love the Goofy, IL. My grandson loves Goofy and has given the picture his stamp of approval

My first and only night at the LTC facility was to be an orientation, but once I found my way, I worked the entire shift providing direct and skilled nursing care and doing some paper charting.

I'm not saying that was bad, as I enjoy all aspects of nursing, but the shift was understaffed. I was told there would be a CNA for each of the three halls, and an RN. Two CNAs were scheduled and the four of us worked all night in providing care.

I did not orientate per se, and other simple thing to set up things I was told would be in place by the time I oriented were not. Too many red flags.

I did enjoy providing what care I could, however.

I second the motion. I tried on HH as a retirement job. It got to be way too much in part bc of the paperwork. I had already done HH previously and it just had changed so much!

The LTC I worked at after retirement was the same, always always understaffed, no supplies etc, them admin literally yelling why things aren't done, why patients not happy, and on top of that everything was dumped on me as the RN Supervisor and (like you) no orientation that was promised along with too many reg flags. Rules/regs are much different!

Depends..🤣🤣
