first, let me thank all of you who gave me advice when i was trying to figure out whether or not i should leave occupational health and go back to hospital nursing.
ya'll are some of the best folks around, anywhere!
now, to share my news: i told my manager (who is also the hr manager) this morning that the hospital made me an offer i can't refuse. namely, they are doubling my pay, plus! my manager was flummoxed-she didn't see this coming. (might be cause she rarely looks my way) anyway, my last day here will be friday, october 25th. i will begin my new job orientation on nov. 4.
and what new job would that be? "float pool," working every sat/sun, and one weekday. i am to be oriented to all units except er. after the orientation is complete, i will then be an admission/discharge/iv nurse. since i like doing patient assessments, patient teaching, and iv's, i think i am going to like this pretty well. i'll let you all know how things go as i get into the job.
thanks again for all the support!
