I'm a critical care float RN at a moderate sized suburban hospital in a large metro region. We specialize in cardiac care, as well as other things. I love being a float because it keeps me out of floor politics and satisfies my professional ADD!

But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31 (NIV)

My stepfather was in a dementia unit the last months of his life. His LPN was a student I had contact with. His care of my stepfather was amazing. He took such pride in his work and in his care.

The care center was spectacular. They were responsive to my mother's needs. They took great care of my stepfather. When he died, there was not a single sore on his body. He was clean and cared for. He had lost weight because he was end stage and forgot how to eat, but he was cared for with the utmost care.

It is a challenge, but I want you to know how much good you do. Thanks.

Hello all, RN in home health for 28 years. Currently Care Manager, certified home care coder, and Oasis specialist for local home health agency for 8 yrs. Hope to retire in about 3 years but plan to volunteer for local hospice.

I am interested in receiving Nutrition Certification. I have been on a mission for about year to improve my health, feel great, and enjoy life more. I know I must continue this for life to have quality of life.

If any of you know of a great Nutrition Certification program, I would appreciate hearing about it. I am currently enrolled in a Nutrition class with the Cooper Institute. A good program but I am seeking a little more in depth program.

Best wishes to each of you!!

Ahh the joys of our jobs right? I am a LPN in a private practice Urogynecology Office in Upstate New York. We only work with Women and their Gyn and Urology problem. It is a Sub-specialty of Gynecology and Urology. Very interesting field. I am currently in School for my RN now. When I finish, I hope to work L&D until I get my FNP.
