A nurse for how long?!

I work with the same company & love the case I am assigned to tons. I can't believe I have been a nurse for almost 2 years in May!!!!!!!!!!!!! (I have been with PSA for 1.5yrs.) That is just crazy! Time just speeds by!

New Job!

Yippee ... I finally got a new job! I am soooooooooo excited to get into pediatric nursing. It will defiantly be a big switch from hospital care to home care but I am very excited to finally get some real "peds" experience. I have flexible hours and can go to school to finish up my bachelors at the same time. I am very excited! :o)

Waiting on God ...

Right now we are simply waiting on God. I am not sure what he has planned but the important thing is that I know he has a plan, plans to prosper us and not to harm us.  I have to remember to thank him now for the what he will be providing for us in the future. We are in the tightest spot we have ever been in financially but I have faith that he has something special waiting for us. I also pray that we learn what we are supposed to from this experience. It is quite a crazy & bumpy road but we are not alone. Thank God!

90 + days later ...

Again, I have no idea what God has planned for my life right now but it does not include the adult ER where I was working. I know that I really have a heart for pediatrics yet ... there is nothing right now and we are drowning being unemployed at the same time. I am waiting for nothing short of a miracle at this point!

30 days ...

I can't believe I have made it through over 30 days in the Emergency Department! Transitioning from a tech to a nurse in the ER/ED (emergency room / emergency department) has been so, so, so, oooooooo much harder than I was anticipating. I cried during my 30 day review then cried for the first time on the floor when one of our doctors got particularly grumpy. I made it about 10 steps and then the tears came, I was so annoyed that I couldn't keep the tears in! He wasn't even that mean really, I was just feeling a bit sensitive!

I like the ever-changing pace of the ER but there are parts of the ED that makes me want to run away screaming!!!! Being an ER nurse challenges everything that I am bad at. Time management, prioritizing, being thick skinned etc. I am hanging in there ... one day at a time.

Thank you Jesus! I passed, I passed, I passed! I am soooo happy I never have to take that bizarre test ever again! :o) I felt more pressure because I had a job lined up but now I am relieved to know that I will be starting my new job ... soon. :o)
