I'm just completing my 1st new year as a returning nurse having been out for 5 years. I work in the Northeast on a med/surg unit at a small impoverished hospital in an impoverished area on the fringe of a large city.
Previously, I worked in the deep south. I also have ER and outpatient clinic experience. I hope to move on soon from med/surg and have many questions. I also hope to positively contribute what I've learned in my eperience. Nurses are very special people who are presently nationally underappreciated.
That needs to change.

It is true that nurses are not appreciated...
It is part of real life drama....
Happy Mother's Day!
And good luck to whatever you do in the future....
