royr has 2 years experience and specializes in school nursing.

Injured on the job as a school nurse - years of neck and spinal cord surgery and Physical therapy. I am now trying to re enter nursing as a disabled individual - with no luck. Have been working as a full time quality control manager outside of nursing - while I try to find my place.

  7. Thanks Tweety - I put my vote in as "other" - so far I really enjoy school nursing - standing up for the children that fall thru the cracks in the system seems to be my new "specialty". The pay is very low for an RN position - but the hope and joy th...
