Hello Darms and Welcome to AllNurses.com!
I sure hope you find this web site a welcoming place.
Wow, sounds cool living on 20 acres. I live in NYC and sometimes I wish I were a wee bit more isolated, sigh. Actually I live on Staten Island, an island roughly 50 miles in circumference and seven miles away from New York City (Manhattan, another island, haha) Presently the population here on "the Island" is under 500,000. I live in a town situated on the North Shore of the Island.
In my civilian life I work for the VA. In my other life I am an Army Nurse with the Army Reserves Nurse Corps. For about 18 years I worked at a Oncology Hospital in critical care but I never got certified to administer chemo.
I have been a nurse for, let me see....32 years now. Best darn decision I ever made and YUP I would do it all over again (and probably get better grades, to boot, smile)
I got three kids, all boys, well young men now. One Active Duty, the other two attending university in Florida.
Again, welcome, welcome, WELCOME and HI, HOW DO YOU DO!
bye for now,
