Doing what you love is better than making money. Thanks for the reminder, Irene.

Irene, not just doing what he enjoys but helping people. That's kind of what influenced me to leave a 'better' position and get my nursing degree. As it turns out, it was a good choice. ;-)

I agree, Pat ... Nursing is certainly one of the highest callings. :P I deeply admire all who are willing to do that sort of work.

When I wanted to continue with music in college, my mother said, "What are you going to do with it?" She was right. It was impractical. It hasn't made me rich - but I think it's a way of helping people too.

Strange thing is I worked in a nursing home some yrs back and was going to go for LPN and I found out I was pregnant, I worked through most of it , took my 6 week leave and when I returned they wanted to float me on 5 different floors as PRN and I said no way I wanted back on my own floor, so I stepped down was prevented from the county working for the next 5yrs and I ended up moving to FL and life went on!

Irene, I worked briefly at a rural hospital that wanted me to float to labor & delivery and I refused. My only experience at that time was in a big city Level I trauma center and the idea terrified me. The line from Prissy, in Gone With the Wind, "I don't know nothin' 'bout birthin' no babies", came to mind. That's when I decided to go into home health and there I stayed.

And I'm really glad you are both here for those of us who know very little about medicine! I never wanted to be a nurse.... and 'now I are one.'

What a horrible development this is!!!! :x

Can i go out and play now?
