A couple of you may remember my dilemma about if I should stay at the clinic, finish grad school, or take the research nurse position. Well, I took the research position.
I started my new job on Monday. It's Thursday. I hate it.
I love the physician I am working for, and she seems to have confidence in me to perform, and I want to perform for her. The molecular biologists I am working with also seem nice so far, two in particular. The assistant is ultra
nice and has been a lifesaver so far. But...I am alone in there. Alone to figure out what the f**k was done before me and how to resume. My email doesn't work. The printer doesn't print. I don't have staff privileges yet at the hospitals I am to recruit at (the sponsoring Doc won't return my calls). I have no idea how to make sure all the consents are approved by the review boards on a timely manner. I have no idea who to call. I don't know how to order nursing supplies. I don't know which tubes to collect my blood draws in. I don't know........
I left today and drove to class tonight and on the way passed my old job. I pulled in briefly and stopped and waved at my old co-worker. I am so, so sad.
The physician is hiring another nurse just like me, so maybe I will wait until she comes on board and then see. But so far I am miserable. Just miserable. I don't know what to do. And school sucks. Every week I have a damn presentation to give....
Sorry for venting. But....well, I needed to vent.
