hello, im Dixie, have been an LPN for 23 years and enjoy working with geriatrics. i have worked in other areas though. i did go back to college and get my ADN but some reason i having a hard time passing my RN NCLEX, so i thought it over and just have decided to say an LPN, im almost 50 and very happy with my career.
i enjoy spending time with my 3 grandkids, 6, 2 and 3 months. i have a son 25 and daughter 23, my daughter has only 3 classes left and will be in the nursing program, she wants to be a nurse practioner. my son has worked at Chase bank in phoenix for 6 yrs in fraud specialist, but is going back to school to become a physical therapist. i enjoy movies, camping, fishing, golfing, picnics, BBQing , family time. some day i would like to go on a cruise. i feel very rewarded when i come home from work and know that i have made a difference in my patients life. i love to see their smile when i go to work after my days off and they tell me they missed me. i really could use the tablet/ipad. we do all our charting on computers now, thats pretty much everywhere now.
