    This is interesting.I guess you can associate fitness with almost everything. Drug rehab centers such as Florida Drug rehabilitation and not only should be aware of this procedure.Maybe those who need help may respond better with a fitness program.

    It would be nice to have a fitness nurse in an alcohol treatment rehab center. I think that people there need exercise so they can their health back, psychologically speaking. Physical exercise can improve your psychological state of mind. It's like that old Latin saying: "Mens sana in corpore sano".

    I think that such a fitness nurse could be very useful in a drug rehab from my point of view. People there need to learn the importance of a healthy body and how anything but that can really cause medical problems.

    Nurses rarely take care of themselves. Often we put ourselves last in front of our patients and families. After working with my personal trainer, I reaped the benefits of being physically healthy and fit. Incorporating that into a career as a fitness RN would be fabulous! Any suggestions on how I can incorporate this into a part-time career in addition to working as an oncology nurse would really help. Thanks!

    I always wished I could combine the two: fitness and nursing. I would like to own my own gym and promote fitness in a community or at a wellness center or even a large complex.

    I think fitness should be a part of all nursing. I think it can prevention in further health problems for the patients nurses care for.
