1. Hi, my name is Joni and I have been a RN for approx 15 yrs. I used to live in NH, but now I live in Michigan. In the UP. Well I have two daughters and two step daughters. They all live some distance so I don't get to se them like I would. I recentlly was a traveling nurse mostly in Wisconsin, since I border this state and Im closer then I am to lower michigan. I also love animals and have a couple of cats, two dogs , four horses and a few chickens and a pygmy goat. I live in a older farm house and have 20 acers of land. Its very rural,sometimes I miss my old life in NH esp my family and the ocean, but I just landed a great job for MGH ( Marqutte General Hospital ) in a out pt setting ( oncology) and Im learning how to administer chemo.. well thats about enough about me for now I could go on and on but I do not want to bore all lof you. Im looking forward to meeting new peers and forming new bonds..LOL.:spin:

    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,
