    I was excited to see this forum title, as I am a "retired" nurse due to disabilities. First, a lifting injury despite doing everything right, i.e. bed flat, good body alignment, and using a lift sheet with a strong male RT on one side. 2 months after that, a very bad MVA ended my career as a nurse. Then the PTSD and depression. But I have survived all that (and lots more!) and now want to be a nurse again, despite my disabilities. Hoped this forum would be a place to hear how others survived and remained or returned to nursing. I have been out of it for 18 years, and have to get my license back by taking the NCLEX. (Never ever give up your license! No matter what!) Would love to hear suggestions on what kinds of nursing jobs are out there which are not so physically demanding. Aiming for Nurse Educator at this point but would love other ideas or areas to look into. Noticed the posts on this forum are rather old and that the original thread was a different focus, but no harm in trying, I figure. Hope that's OK and that I might hear from some of you. Thanks! Miss my sweet Newf!
