    I poured on my cattle's back, and injected IM in a feeder pig......when we had our ranch..... keep wondering if I pass a worm, but nothing yet The preventive program is pretty simple, take one tablet, the three days later another, and one every two weeks.....
  7. Hello Viva,   I forgot my password on allnurses, for a year, getting older not for the faint of heart, but at 72 working full time home health

      Welcome back! It’s amazing that you’re still working full-time. I’d have retired at 70 if I’d had a choice in the matter. As it is, I only made it to 55, but I had a good career for the most part. Glad you’re enjoying yours. 🙂

      I tried retiring at 69y, but that only lasted 6-8 weeks,  got bored, I had already trained my replacement at the clinic I was working in, but the lady that owns this HHA, was a friend and former patient at my old clinic, I called her up, told her I was bored and wanted to work, did not care if it was part time, or part time,  part time, next week I was working mostly part time, which quickly became full time.......

      I’m glad you’re doing what you love. As long as you’re physically and mentally fit to do the job, there’s no such thing as “too old”. I once knew a nurse in her mid-80s who was still working the med/surg  floor.

    Seasoned Nurses - This one is for you

    We know what we know because we did it....there is a devolution on clinical in today's nursing education ....of course I'm coming from a '72 diploma program......our critical thinking skills were developed in our 70% clinical
  14. I hope the older experienced nurse takes my attitude, I love to help a younger nurse develope and mayoress, wish you were working with someone similar to me, who realizes, teaching and nurturing the younger nurse is an asset... Again, Best Wishes Sally
  15. Learn from us crusty old bats....we were where you are now decades ago.... learn from your deficiencies, I always took a corrective action on my part as a younger nurse as a teaching moment........you c,an be a better nurse, learning something from an experienced nurse, my 46.5 years as a RN, makes it more than one. Rodeo nurses as me have rode out..... you will be a wonderful nurse, if you do not take our experience defensive.... You can do this, as some of us v" crusty ole bats". Need some relief, and we need you younger nurses Best Wishes Sally
