I have been a registered nurse (RN) for 7+ years now. I also recently became a licensed ARNP. 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.

I am currently choosing to start this journey at NurseWorth anonymously as I do not wish my professional nursing career and personal life to mix at this time. Who knows? Maybe in the future …
