Nurses Who Sail / Sailors Who Nurse :)

I meet a lot of Nurses her at CF, thought it would be neat to start a thread and ask the Nurses to say "Hi".
I work in the operating room as a circulator, I hope to do some work as a volunteer as I cruise. It would be great to hear from nurses that have cruised and applied their skills to help in ports they visited.

Cheers,
Erika


PS. ** it is perioperative Nurses week, so Happy Nurses week to all

PSS. a very nice couple from Galveston pm'd me and before I could reply I erased their message. So if you read this sorry I didn't reply! please pm me again. I am posting this here because one was a Nurse.

I thought you sounded familiar Erika. I'm a former nurse, now an Anesthesiologist. And happily married to a nurse

Both Julie my wife and I are RN's.
She teaches nursing at A&M University, but is a former ICU/cath lab nurse.
I am currenly in a Neuro Surgical ICU. Traveled for many years, wound up here in Corpus Christi, Tx.
Hopefully will retire in 11 years to cruise full time. Will suplement the budget with contract work for a few years after.

I work in the engine room, nursing my 30 y.o. MD7. I also nurse my sailing and mountaineering dreams.

I am good at it.

When sailing, have not met any nurses. Met many wives nursing their sailing husbands.

Yep. It is an elderly lady, and has some elbow problems (not the tennis elbow, the exhaust one ;-)). Corroded and epoxied. So she is patched and happy but I will have to look around and when one of them dies, ask the other nurses to donate this vital organ.

RN with a plan to sail

Hi there,
yes, I too am at the time, (age) when I have started with plans to leave the west coast of Florida (where I am a critical care nurse) and start meandering about.Hurricane season, I plan to travel north. ( fool um ) Nov. thru June start living on my s/v Drifter in attempts to acclimate to boat life. Then off,off, and away, that is if I can still hoist a sail. I would like insight and companionship along the way ( a few words of wisdom,advice and wonderful insight needed, really, it's ok)

Edit: The above is written by my Lady, Erma. So as not to confuse folks I'm still the recently retired geologist/curmudgeon I've always been.

I am having to put my old nursing skills to work at the moment. I was an operating theatre nurse and then the unit manager of a Drug and Alcohol detox unit and here I am nursing Ray with a bad back. Don't know if I am actually doing him any good either! So Hi from a retired nurse doing some home nursing. Yay to all nurses!
