Nice to meet you. My Son is currently in BC. He is probably finishing up his "p" days. Hard not hearing from him.
I am currently a RN working perdiem in local hospital. I am also finally finishing up my BSN. I am going to also complete my school nurse certification. Probably going to look towards middle school or high school. How do you like it compared to Hospital nursing?
What rating is your son? How has the Navy been to him?
I enjoyed Camp Nursing. If you are a Middle School nurse,you will be very comfortable with this job. It ranges from homesick kids to anaphylactic shock...you never know what the day will bring. It's very rewarding, but not in a monetary sense. I did it for many summers when my kids were at camp also.
