Bill, you can always do a locum tenens assignment. We used to see quite a few of them when I worked in a smaller hospital in the OR. I'm in the cardiothoracic ICU now, working up my experience to possbly apply to CRNA school at MUSC in Charleston or, hopefully, UNC Charlotte/Carolinas College of Healthcare Sciences. I still need to take the GRE, which I dread, but I suppose it's a necessary evil.
I guess a lot of us are drawn from nursing to hammocking because our jobs have such a high stress level. We, if anyone, can certainly appreciate the value of relaxing comfortably. I know I do. I'm still looking for a place in the parking area to hang my hammock during lunch (Around 12-1 am , if I'm lucky) without security riding my butt about it.
