As a long time nurse and educator I want to be sure that the touch is handed over to the next generation with the same wish it was handed to me. I was graced with loving mentors who never failed to help me become the best nurse I could be...so to my beloved students. Here is what I share. You are reading page 4 of My Beloved Nursing Students. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

If I ever needed medical help, I would hope a nurse like you was there! You seem very diligent. Thanks for the informative post.

Thanks you....

Unfortunately...the cards are not in my favor. I am disabled from an auto-immune disorder. My daughter is going into a BSN program in the fall and my son will be in college next fall. I have a BSN and there is not enough room in the budget for more debt. My disability has progressed to the point I need a wheelchair. People don't want a nurse in a wheelchair. I can walk only a few feet without assistance. The wheels that have become a necessary evil for me has somehow affected my ability to process intelligent thought..it is what it is. I had an educator position...until I needed assistance with walking. I have, begrudgingly, come to terms with this...sigh

I know people make the right noises but when it comes to the bottom line...I "am over qualified", "not enough experience", "Not enough education", and they have "found a better candidate". Taking on debt for me...with no real chance that anyone would hire me...is not a reality until they are taken care of...so....I help online. I volunteer at a sim lab, with the approval of the school, to help the students run through scenarios and critically think.

I spend my time here helping. I love this community! It suits me.

Good for you! The profession NEEDS good teachers like us!

Oh my gosh.....even with all that adversity, still, thank you for teaching us and pushing us. You are the same to me as if I had an instructor standing right next to me. Thank you!

I think I may have done an accidental butt posting. 😁

Esme, thank you so much for all your words of wisdom and encouragement. I have been a "lurker" for a while and have just started posting. There are many of "regulars" that post on this site, that I have huge respect for and enjoy they're postings.

I am so sorry to hear of your illness, I too suffer from an autoimmune disorder,among other issues. I wish you, more good days than bad. Thank you, for liking my random post 😊
