I have been a Registered Nurse since 1996, and on the faculty at a college of nursing since 2009. I teach students in their last year before graduating, in two different clinical sites as well as hold a lecture course in Nursing Management. (Not the most exciting topic.)
Prior to teaching, my nursing experience was widely varied. I worked in a Cardiac/Critical Care Unit, in an Emergency Department, and as a Hospital Supervisor (night shift--I was responsible for every aspect of the hospital.)
I worked for two different insurance companies. I was an underwriter for three (evaluating health risk and pricing premiums appropriately), performing utilization review (authorizing procedures and reviewing claims) at another and reviewing medical records for potential provider fraud at the third. All of those experiences gave me the understanding of the business side of health care.
Prior to my nursing career, I was managed one restaurant and was chef at another, was a direct salesman for many different companies (sometimes successfully, sometimes not), had had many other jobs (shipping/receiving manager at a dairy bottling plant, security guard, courier, substitute day care teacher, car wash supervisor, carpet cleaner, and bartender many times. I've been working since I was 15.
This diverse work history has given me the ability to work with people of many backgrounds, and a wide range of knowledge. It has been a wild and crazy 37 years, and I don't imagine it ever getting "normal."
Some of my non-nursing interests are reading (detective/thriller novels, biographies, motivational business and cookbooks), cooking (especially anything over a grill or smoke), home brewing, and collecting vintage (1950s) glassware. (Yeah. I know. It's odd. But that's who I am.)
I've been married for 30+ years, to a wife who is an awesome middle school teacher. We have two grown sons and a 9 year old pug named Ozzy, and live in Northeast Wisconsin. 
I am also a podcaster (currently on hiatus), with my motivational podcast at http://www.MakeYourSomedayToday.com
