My Grandmother began one of the first Nursing Homes in 1950 next door to her home in the country caring for anyone that needed help and I literally grew up there doing everything I could to help, I loved it, it my home and everyone was family to me... none of it was "work", it was just my life. I was born to care for people and animals... so of course I ending in the Nursing field for 30+ years now (Bone Marrow Transplant, Oncology, Dermatology Surgery, Psychiatry, Disabled) I had a license for many years yet as time went on I worked for people on a private basis which did not require me having a license and I preferred private care so I stopped renewing it about 9 years ago.
