No longer a nurse.


There is the adage that everyone dies twice. The first time when you physically die…and the second time when your name is spoken for the last time.

It kinda feels like that with the end of a nursing career. The first end is when you retire….the second is when you decline to renew your nurse’s registration.

As of today, I am no longer a registered nurse.

Wow. Somehow I feel a little lighter.

  1. Me too after 50 years in the profession. So many changes but we adapted. Don’t know that I feel lighter, more a bit sad. Will all that nursing stuff fall out of my brain now? More time for other pursuits though.

  2. Hat tip to you sir! Thank you for all your efforts with Nursepath over the years… I learned so much and your style of writing really made me excited for each post! Zippers, rings and all manner of things! Happy retirement and thank you for your service 🙏


  3. Me….I am not ready…still too much to give…to both New Grads under my Wing and my Patients who love having a Nurse that was Hospital trained and had been around the block once or twice…🤣🤣🤣🤣
