I am a 66 to nurse that has a lot of experience in critical care areas. My last few years have been in psych. I had no problems performing my duties as a nurse but was often out into the position of being a tech for the 12 hours but this involves a lot of running around a large campus with little opportunity to rest. It would normally have been a nice break from the duties of med admin, dc, admits, etc. But I have ra as well as a pinched nerve in my back which can cause a lot of pain. I also have days of increased sob from last year heart attack. I along with a few others were put on tech duty more often than others. (some never. )
Even when a tech available. I had to resign as they would not allow me to change to prn or part time. I have sold my home and moved closer to family in east Texas. I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for a position that didn't require long periods of walking or standing. Not ready to quit yet.
