Default Greetings

Hello everyone! My name is Sean and I have been a lurker on this site for some time. I've enjoyed reading many of the discussions but feel that in order to learn better I need to take a more active role by contributing. Hopefully, I will be better about doing that. I currently work in an inpatient hospital setting. I have received a specialty certification in orthopedics yet in my current setting I find I do not use that knowledge often. I feel that knowledge of the nervous system and pain is not only more valuable to me clinically but more fascinating as well. I do enjoy being active in my free time (running and cycling) and will be curious to learn more about how the brain affects athletic performance.
Thanks,
Sean

Welcome, Sean.

How'd you end up in acute care with an OCS?

Welcome Sean. I applaud you in taking an active role in your learning journey, something we all need to do. Passivity gets you no where, except to stay where you are.
