Nurses penchant for putting more emphasis on their patients and
professions than on their personal lives and the necessity for
RNs to strike a balance is a constant topic in blogs and conversation.
Rebecca Casuga, an RN at Veterans Hospital in Palm Beach Gardens,
has learned the value of both and uses her love of travel to complement
her RN duties. Together with her family, Casuga has visited every
continent, seven new world wonders and about 70 countries.
Casuga attributes her ability to balance work and life goals to
maintaining a positive attitude. When you believe in yourself
there are no limits to what you can be, no barriers to what you
Casuga, who has visited the Emperor Penguin Colony at Snow Hill
Island, the Egyptian pyramids, Indias Taj Mahal, and Perus Machu Picchu, also says her travels have opened her eyes to the plights of people around the world and the importance of helping others whenever possible.
Nursing has been good to me, Casuga said in an article written by her husband, Mario. Thank God for working as a nurse for over 30 years, Ive seen practically the whole world.
