Hello there, and welcome to Nurseboards.com. My name is Michelle Raines and I am a retired nurse. During my career, I have worked in surgery as both a circulating nurse and a scrub nurse. I worked in Case Management for a couple of years and then worked for Baxter International for four years traveling nationally teaching nurses and physicians about medical devices.
I also have experience in telenursing and working with patients who have Multiple Sclerosis and Chrohns Disease.
I decided to retire and focus more on building a website for nurses to network and interact with other nurses. This website is very special to me and it is rapidly growing. We now have over 20,000 members.
It’s the only nursing site of its kind that allows nurses to join the group of their specialty and network with their peers. It also allows nurses to start their own group and make it public or private, which is great for nurses who want to start a group for work and add their coworkers.
Originally for Northern Ireland, I was raised in England and moved to the United States in 1987.
I hope you enjoy this website as much as I do. There are a lot of wonderful members of this site and it’s also a lot of fun to be the administrator. I learn new things in the nursing arena every day and it’s entertaining and enlightening to have so many excellent nurses as part of this site.
