Summary

I retired at 70. Nursing is my passion and retirement has been hard. I still have my license up to date. I have worked with the mentally ill. I suffered back injury in teens requiring 4 surgeries and last surgery caused me to limp. I was able to work as RN over 30 years. I am looking at triage because my mouth and assessment skills are still intact
