Background: According to recent studies, the level of international interest in bridge employment, as return to work after retirement, has been growing. Objective: This study aimed to explore the experiences of retired nurses in Iran with regard to making a decision about whether or not to seek bridge employment. Methods: A qualitative study using a content analysis approach was conducted in an urban area of Iran. Semi-structured interviews were held with 20 Iranian male and female retired nurses chosen using purposive sampling. : During the data analysis, two main themes were identified as the participants' thoughts supporting the decision of seeking bridge employment.
She began her career as an operating room nurse, just getting started as penicillin was introduced to the health care world.

I love to interact with patients and give them the help that I can.
She is recognized by her peers as someone who always wants to jump in and help. Eager to remain active, she walks 3 miles or more on a regular basis. In all of her years, Rigney said, the biggest change she's seen in health care is in the amount of time patients spend at the hospital after having surgery, according to the local affiliate.
Whereas in the past patients might have stayed 10 days or more, now most patients go home after just a few days. Still, as the years have brought plenty of change, it seems she has been able to "keep up" by maintaining an open mind.
You never stop learning.
The hospital Rigney is retiring from plans to honor her legacy and dedication to her work by creating a scholarship in her name for MultiCare Tacoma General nurses and employees who are interested in pursuing nursing for continued learning and development, according to the local news station.
