(Sort of) Old Nurse, New To Forum

  1. HI to all you forum readers! I am new to the forums here; I have always thought these were for only the "Nancy Nurse" types but I am seeing that there's a lot of good info to be found.

    I've been a nurse for 27 years. Wow, that's a long time!

    My dream job is a national park ranger or conservation agent. Away from sickness, death, and doctors...... communing with nature on a daily basis.........but I digress. I'm stuck with nursing for the time being...(house cars, kids, etc.)

    Yeh, you can say I'm cynical but you veteran nurses know where I'm coming from and if you haven't been in it for at least a decade? Check back in a few years and see if you still feel the same way.

    Cynical or not, welcome to Allnurses.

    I just love your screen name. Yes, those of us who have been around a decade or longer look more and more through squinted eyes. I never want to become so skeptical that I think everyone's a criminal/loser/liar/headcase. But neither do I want my chain yanked on a regular basis.

    Glad you found us. Plenty of non-Nancy Nurse types in these parts.
