Happy Labor Day!
Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. It also symbolizes the end of summer for many Americans, and is celebrated with parties, parades and athletic events. For kids it is back to school for another year, people are spending time with their family like I am going to do today, no work for me and no school for the kids. I took the time to Google where labor day started and this is what I found on about.com
When was the First Labor Day?
According to the Department of Labor, the first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City, according to the plans of New York’s Central Labor Union. The second Labor Day followed a year later, on September 5, 1883. Labor Day wasn’t part of a three-day weekend until 1884, when the first Monday in September was selected as the holiday, as originally proposed by the Central Labor Union, who then urged other labor organizations in other cities to celebrate the holiday on the first Monday of September.
Nursing is a laborious job that causes many nurses to want a change in the profession sooner than later. Seasoned nurses, who have been in the field more than 5 years is getting hard to find. Nursing used to be a job that a nurse would work part time or just three days a week, but the high demands and lower staffing numbers available are causing more over time and more stress in the field. As rewarding as being a nurse is – it is also a profession that ends before the age of 60 years old for many nurses.
What are those nursing turning to once they leave the profession?
I would love to hear your view of what you think they are choosing to do after they leave the nursing profession or retire over on my facebook wall. I want to hear from you and your view of what is next after nursing.
