I received my R.N. diploma in 1976, B.S. in Health Arts in 1983, and have 25+ years in O.R. and O.B. The past nine years of which was in pre-op interview at an outpatient center, dealing with telephone assessment and converting to total electronic health records. I am interested in holistic health with emphasis on preventative care. Would prefer to work from home, as I turned sixty this year, and currently am helping a friend through chemo. Any suggestions?
