What Attracted You To The Field of Nursing?
Work At Home Opportunities

Last First Name: Clague Wendy, RN
City: Lakewood
State: Ohio
What kind of nursing do you do: Long Term Care, Subacute, Rehab, Geriatrics
How did you hear about the Nurse Friendly Homesite: Ran into it while browsing
Marital Status: Married
Nationality: American Heinz 57--a little of everything

How many years have you been practicing as a nurse: 5
Professional organizations you belong to: None at the moment.
Would you recommend the field: Only if they like hard work. Not really I would recommend only for those with an understanding that a lot of times LTC means end of life care too.
Employment changes in career: Once
Reason for the change: Unhappy with orientation at first job out of school.
If you lost your job tomorrow how easily do you feel you find new employment: It would probably be fairly easy for me to get another job LTC is pretty wide open.

In how many years would you like to retire: Not until I absolutely have to.
Have you started any type of retirement fund: Yes
Would this travel : Yes
Do you feel having certified Patient Educational Materials on the WWW would be beneficial: Yes
Nursing School you attend if applicable: Cuyahog Community College
Where do you work: Hospital-based LTC
Do you carry a personal malpractice insurance policy why or why not: Yes you can never be too careful these days.
Your most pressing concerns with the profession and healthcare: There seems to be an over abundance of non-caring people in our profession. Working in LTC we use a lot of agency people nurses and nursing assistants. It seems as though a lot of them have become burned out or after only the almighty dollar. I would say out of every three I see only one is asked to return. Also worrisome is the idea of nursing assistants passing medications. I have heard that some facilities in my area are doing this when hard pressed. The nurse leaves the medications already prepared and the aide hands them out. Also I think understaffing is the biggest problem in LTC.

What attracted you to the field of Nursing: My mother is a nurse but she didnt encourage I know why.
Favorite TV show and musical artists: TV Music These are foreign words to a night-shifter. I dont get to see much television and the radio puts me to sleep.
Favorite food: Lately I eat a lot of fast food my bad. But my favorite food is stuffed steak.
Qualities you admire in your friends & loved ones: Honesty hard working funloving ability to take a joke--especially when things are tough at work.
Pet Peeves: Having to follow slow working people on the previous shift.
Major turn-offs: Stupidity sloppy uncaring people.
Hobbies and activities you enjoy outside of work: I enjoy being out in the yard or going to the park just relaxing.
Pets favorite vacation spots: Mini shepard Shadow, Siamese mix cat Smoke, two parakeets Shaggy and Chickenbird

Cheryl Schosky, CRNA, MSN, Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist, Nurse Entrepreneur, Rexall Showcase International:"After receiving my BSN in 1986 and my MSN in anesthesia in 1992, I began what I thought would be my career until retirement. I worked hard to achieve my personal goals and be the best professional I could be. I was making a six-figure income and believed it would always exist and continue to grow over time. However, over the past 6 years Managed Care has dramatically changed health care for patients and professionals."
