[QUOTE=Julielpn]My beautiful 18 year old daughter signed up for the military and is leaving Tuesday for boot camp.
She is the one I am very close to and who has kept me sane throughout the years. I love her more than anything and I am going to miss her terribly.
My heart is already breaking and I can't cry another tear....
This pain is almost unbearable to let her go.
I know I have to, but it is so very hard.......
Life is hard.....too hard.....
Amanda~ I love you so very much and will always be with you! [/QUOTE
My heart goes out to you. I have an 18yo niece who is joining the Army reserves and is leaving for boot camp this week as well. I wanted so to encourage her to consider other paths and I did write to her, but she has her dreams. I do not want her to go to Iraq. Last Friday I heard a story on NationalPublicRadio about a Major Stacy Garrity in southern Iraq who worked in a prison. It was a beautiful story and made me feel a bit better about my niece and what may lie ahead for her. Check out the story on NPR.com--and put in keywords Iraq, Garrity. take care dear mother.
Does anyone know of any CEU workshops for NICU nurses happening in Chicago the week of July 19 or July 26? I may be visitiing family and would like to extend my visit, by adding on a few days of CEU classes. Hope someone can respond without it seeming like they are advertising since that is not allowed. Or, if you know of the free nursing newspaper for Illinois share the name with me and I will check on-line. thanks a lot.
Hello all you experienced NICU nurses! I'm looking for some advice...I worked for a year on a med/surg unit (and didn't really care for it!), then took four years off. Now I want to return to nursing, but not caring for adults! I loved the NICU when I was in school, and I would really like to work in that area. A nurse recruiter told me to take a refresher course before applying for any jobs, but after reading some of the posts here, it sounds like that wouldn't be of any help. Wouldn't a refresher course be geared towards med/surg? Does anyone have any advice about how I can prepare to work in the NICU? Do I have any chance with my background?
If you weren't a nurse, what would you be? Money no object of course
