I've been a Registered Nurse since 2013. I have worked many areas including; OB, women's health, orthopedics, oncology, medical/surgical, wound care, IV management, medication management, all activities of daily living (feeding, bathing, toileting, dressing, etc) physician scheduling and management. I have been a travel nurse for the last year and I've handled and experienced a lot of really amazing medical works. Being an RN limits my time with my patients. I want a more personal relationship with the people I care for. Before looking at wages, look at skill set: that can be the difference between life and death for your loved one.
