Retirement just another phase in life
(Augusta, Mo USA)
Here I am 62 years old last year and working as an RN for 37 years in the same Hospital system. Then, it hit me oh my gosh I am the oldest person here on my shifts.
I had patients "not wanting to bother me" I could feel it, I knew I had reached my plateau. I truly loved being an RN and had several different positions over the years.
I had worked in Neurosurgery, Critical Care, Rehab, Nursing Supervision and Step down areas in the hospital. Little by little I saw our group dwindle from our early youth to "Senior RN".
