Gooooooooood Morning folks!
How is everyone? Here's your song for the day
! I personally love this song and think that it is waaaaaaaaaay better than the "single" they released from the same album!
I've been posting so sporadically of late - I don't really know whats going on! :imbar
I sign on and check out my forums and the Staff forums and see if anything warrants attention on my behalf as "Staff" but that's about it.
I know some of you have been asking me how I am and how my new job has been going. I think I really ought to answer y'all!
I'm doing ok given the circumstances. I'm orienting on the floor now and will be doing so for the next five weeks atleast. And I've already had episodes to remember by - from disrespectful internists to supportive docs. I have a wonderful preceptor and awesome co-workers. We are fairly busy - but I have yet to have any peer not welcome me. I realise that as an "orientee" I am more of a burden than a help but they never let me feel that way ... especially my preceptor (she is just awesome).
I'm still trying to learn the ropes at the new job - paperwork is a part of it. But most importantly is dealing with the individual quirkiness of the docs who round the floor!
Still, I find my workplace environment to be largely bereft of negetivity. Yes, sometimes I may be 'unsupervised' and expected to be able to hold my own - but I can understand that. If nothing else - I don't see anyone whining, moaning, complaining at the drop of a hat etc. We are largely supportive of each other.
About the one "unique" thing is that I am probably the ONLY "male" RN for about three floors (my own and the two below me) now
The only thing that 'intimidates' me is the 'experience' I am up against. Frankly, I am in AWE of my co-workers... the "average" is about 20 years of experience! My preceptor has been doing this job on this floor for the past 30 years.... 23 of whom she has also been a "preceptor"!
So in short ~ it's a wonderful job. My Director and I get along fabulously (and he is
a wonderful gentleman
), my charge nurses are terse but accomodating, my preceptors are awesome, and the aincillary staff are great.

I do love that book, and the movies made of it (in varying degrees).
Have you seen "Bride and Prejudice
