Hello to the forum! I've been surfing this site for a long time, but haven't logged on in years. I'm a veteran nurse (18+ years), currently taking time off from working to be home with my 2 year old daughter. The bulk of my experience is in L&D and OR, but I've done a little med/surg here and there, and worked in an FP office. We just moved to Virginia Beach from north of Chicago. My husband is a Naval officer, and like I said, I'm taking a break from nursing to stay home with my little one. I enjoy reading the posts when I have a chance, and like keeping up on the current events in nursing.
