I have been a registered nurse (RN) for 9+ years and a family nurse practitioner for 2+ years. I thoroughly enjoy the nursing profession and the opportunities and relationships I have experienced as a nurse.
NurseWorth is about my journey as a nurse towards financial independence. Financial independence is not something that nurses talk about. Most nurses assume they will work for 30-40 years and then retire in their mid-60s.
At NurseWorth, I want to challenge this assumption and instead become financially independent in 10-15 years. I like the term Financial Independence (FI) rather than retirement because I don’t plan on retiring from life in 10-15 years. Financial independence is not laziness rather it is a freedom to pursue life without the restraints of having to work paycheck to paycheck. NurseWorth is all about the journey in pursuing this lifestyle.
Most nurses and other people probably most commonly make my biggest financial mistake when starting out in life. Thankfully my biggest financial mistake ended up okay, and now I have a new dream for the future.
