Congratulations. I'm an RN too and love my job. I've been on mat leave and am going back part time, next week.
True, while the pay isn't poverty level, sometimes for what you do and go through there could be more coming your way.lol ... But... You don't do it only for the money.
Nursing is hard and challenging on so many levels, but so so rewarding. Dive into this opportunity. It really is fantastic!
