Default Guess I'll start the Hello's

Hi everyone. I'm Sunny and one of the old geezers now. I've been in nursing over 30 years and work part time now. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone on here.

Talking Hi!

I shall be an official member of this topic in 20 days. At that point I'll be 50 and a nurse for 29 years.

Too bad we don't have a "young nurses" forum so I could post in that for another two-and-a-half weeks!

Hi Sunny. I'm glad to meet you. Yes, we old geezers are still plugging along in nursing, but most of my friends are going part time, or getting out of nursing all together. What type of nursing are you involved in?

Kim, what are you doing on birthday? You must do something special in honor of the BIG 5-0!

Default rapidly approaching

And I'll hit that big number in December. But I'm a relatively newbie nurse. Oh, to have figured this out years ago.

Well, they say 50 is the new 30. And I'm a gerontologist, so you can trust me on this one

My my, can you tell schools out? Maybe I'll actually make some posts on my own blog!

LOLOL!!! I will take the word of a gerontology nurse! If 50 is the new 30, then 100 is the new 80 and I bet I'm still working when THAT one comes along. We'll have to have a forum for the "ancient nurse"!

Yep, I'm a geezer, you're a geezer, wouldn't you like to be a geezer too? And if you can remember that Doctor Pepper commercial, then I guess we're all geezers!

Who invented that word anyway?

But I prefer to think of myself as in my prime (thank you very much!)

I not only remember that commercial, I remember the guy in it was named David MacNaughton!

The things I remember scare me sometimes......

I figure that I'll probably be working right along with you Kim!

100 may be the new 80, as can be seen by folks like my 86 year-old mom who, after having her second knee replaced, five days later walked into the house--we're talking 16 stairs to the front door.

OTOH, there are those patients who are so beat up physically from their health (physical & mental) issues that the 60 y.o. looks like they're in their late 80's.

I'll jump in and say "Hello!" I guess I fit into a few catagories- Home Health, Hospice, Mental Health, med/surg-- But most definitely the "Over 50" group! I don't blog, but I've been reading them for a long time. Hope it's ok for me to join in here.
