New Nurse,I just heard about this forum:)

  1. Hello.
    A short introduction about myself.

    I am a 31 y/o male from the Netherlands.
    I live in a nice house in Diemen(near Amsterdam) and am married to my great man. Yeps thats possible in the Netherlands, thank god.

    I have studied 5 years to become a Nurse.
    After my graduation I have worked in an academical Hospital for 2 years.
    Later on in many other institutions, a real jobhopper, I like new chalenges.

    Before I became A Part-time nurse, I worked 1 year at an intensive-care unit. Great job, one of my most great times in healthcare.
    This moment I still work for 1 day in Healthcare, just because I like it and not to lose my technical medical knowledge. Me and my man have set up a business in the financial business. So thats my main target now and healthcare is my hobby now, sounds strange, but its the most beautiful job in the world there is. enough for now. Hope to read more at this forum later on, It looks nice!

    Welcome to allnurses, Gerard!

    It's so much nicer when you can do something because you enjoy it, and not because you're obligated (by money or otherwise)!

    Hi Gerard and welcome! Sounds like an interesting career so far and wishing you lots of success in your financial endeavors.

    I love the way you described your spouse . . . "am married to my great man".

    I am also married to my great man, I am an RN working in a rural hospital where we do a bit of everything (OB, med-surg, post-op, ER, LTC, ortho).

    I have 4 children, 21 year old boy, 19 year old boy, 14 year old girl and almost 3 year old boy. We are looking to adopt a child.

    I work part-time and will never work full-time again. My goal is stay-at-home mom.

    So having financial success would be a good thing My husband and I own a logging truck, which we just purchased. So hopefully business will be good.

    Again, welcome!
