One of my favorite aspects of nursing is the diverse opportunities the profession has to offer. The bulk of my nursing career has been in home health care where I provided case management and skilled nursing care for a wide range of clients, as well as provided training for home health aides. My next venture was as a district school nurse. I have also worked in private-duty nursing and long term care. My professional interests are in community health nursing, rural health and nursing education.
