What she doesn't know is the number of background checks ran on me since 2007. Let's see: 3 employment ones, 1 to start school, 1 for Iowa BON, 2 Conceal and Carry and the one through the FBI. That was for those of us associated with my son for his Top Secret Security Clearance for his military job. Most were pretty basic, but two were thorough.

People just don't know what we have to do to become nurses.

There have been some really out there threads lately. And common sense must be in short supply.

I am kind of tired of "am I too old to be a nurse" threads. Life is too short to second guess going after your dreams. Just do it! Yes I get strange looks at times being a new grad at 43 but I have never ever regretted my decision to go back to school.

I think many people give themselves self-limiting prophecies; whenever someone told me that "I couldn't", I would think "watch ME".

When the self tells one "I can't" sometimes it's harder; I honestly thought that I wasn't going to end up in Emergency Nursing despite my initial job at 19 in an ED and thrived in the atmosphere; I wanted to always be in the ED, and by my life's experiences, that goal just went away; when they were hiring LPNs at the time I graduate PN school and we're going through mange risk changes and called me back after I started working with spinal cord and traumatic brain injury pts in a Acute Rehab Hospital, I put it off my path and focused on what was in front of me-LIFE got in the way of being mindful to my dreams until I realized that I ended up where I always wanted to be, whether I realized it or not.

It's July. We get a milder influx in January, too.

There are also the ones who tell you that you can't, in the HOPES you wont. To them, I proudly display two middle fingers and say, "WATCH ME." I only have one person like that in my world, and every ounce of her resentment brings me an ounce of satisfaction.

I miss that show. :(

I think the app died. Which makes me very sad. 🙁 I know they aren't fixing it & I HATE the website. Ugh.

I know, right? I have trouble navigating the mobile and desktop versions. I wish they could at least nake them more streamlined like the app.
