View Full Version : L&D RN, new here

Just joined. My name is Stacey. I live in Wichita KS. I've been in L&D since 1997, when I graduated. Went straight in from school.

After several years, I got fed up with the assembly line methods of having babies. Left nursing, worked in home birth with midwives for about 6 years. Then after a divorce, I needed a regular paycheck and ins for my kids, so back into nursing I went.

I'm in a free standing birth care center now, which is a decent in between for me. I wish for a more natural birth climate here but it is what it is.

Personally, I have 7 children and 1 grand baby. My oldest is married and 21, my youngest is 3. While I was not being an RN, I also began to study photography and worked as a professional photographer for a few years before moving back to Kansas. Trying to get something started here with that, but ti's a rough market here, totally saturated with photographers. I'd like to go down to part time, just to cover ins. and then really focus on photography.

Nice to meet you all ahead of time!
