Nurse “comes home” to the Good Samaritan Society
For Millie Sexton, all roads have led back to the Good Samaritan Society. The long-time nurse spent the early years of her career working at the Society’s Brownsville, Texas, location. Decades later, she’s doing interim work at various Society locations.
Millie and her husband retired seven years ago and Millie went into interim nursing three years later.
“I do one or two travel nurse assignments a year,” says Millie.
RV’ing around the country
As retirees, Millie and her husband have made an RV their home and often travel to areas where they can pursue their favorite hobby – hiking. One of their favorite destinations is Big Bend National Park in Texas, where they go in the winter.
Although they like to stay in areas where the temperature is moderate, they were open to Millie taking an interim assignment at Good Samaritan Society – St. Vincent’s in Bismarck, North Dakota, because it was summer.
North Dakota was also appealing because of its proximity to Glacier, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks – some of the places they’ve wanted to visit.
Finding her calling as a nurse
Nursing wasn’t always Millie’s dream, but her mom was a licensed practical nurse and one of her great aunts was a nurse anesthetist. She convinced Millie to change her major to nursing.
