    Hi

    I was born & raised in Chicago;I am 62 years old & have been an RN for 41 years.

    I went to school at an old Diploma School. It was a 3 year program--we went to school for 36 full months.

    I work in a Large City Hospital that is a Level One Trama Center.

    Presently, I am certified in Oncology Nursing; I work on a floor with Medical/Surgical Patients as well as Cancer/Hematology patients; I have worked the night shift for about 30 years.

    I have had a varied career. I was Nurse Manager for a time; I have worked in Psychiatry, OB-Gyne, Peds, Rehab and Home Health.
    I worked Home Health for 10 years during the day whilke I was working the Night shift at the Hospital; about 2 years ago I felt I needed to cut down to just the night job.

    I LOVE nursing; I would do it again in a Heart Beat; I do not always like all the paperwork involved--but it has to be done.

    I prefer just being with the patients!

    I am looking forward to retirement in a couple of years.When that happens, I would like to volunteer my time in a Hospice.

    I hope this is what you were looking for

    I have been in Chicago for almost a year and a half now. I really enjoy my job in an ICU. I am also in school working on my masters. You can PM me if you want. Where do you live now?

    Hello lizzyette,

    Fellow Chicago nursing student here.

    You might also be interested to check out both the Illinois nursing forum and also the student nurse threads too.
