1. hi, everyone!

    my name is rich. i live in south central tennessee and i am a lpn. i graduated in 1997, and have worked psyche, critical care & internal med. currently, i work in a rehab. i've recently relocated to this area from the mid west. a little more about me.. i was born in indiana, moved at age 5 to florida. when i was 17 my family "bought the farm" literally, we packed up and moved to missouri. after my mother passed away in 2000, my father moved to tn. i stayed in missouri for who knows what reason

    i decided to relocate to tn to be closer to my family, i have 2 sisters and 1 brother, 3 great nephews and 3 beautiful nieces! i live about 5 miles from the alabama state line, in a semi mountain region. during my free time, i like to spend time with my dogs, cordelia (basset hound) and auggie (bloodhound) i also enjoy health and fitness, sports and family. i work in rehab/ltc facility, and find it to be quite different then my past jobs. the pace is a lot slower, and the patients are very nice. i hope to soon move closer to the nashville area (i'm about 25 miles from a "large" town) while this is a beautiful area, i think i need a little faster pace in my life. (the town i live in has approx. 150 people)

    thanks for the opportunity to introduce myself, sorry that i have rambled on so. have a great day! take care!

    Welcome to allnurses, Rich!

    I know what you mean about small towns - Southern ones especially! I'm planning on moving to a bit bigger area once I graduate school myself....
