I'm back!!!!

  1. Hey to everybody,

    Been so busy in the last few months haven't had much time to come here other than the occasional peek now and again. I sure have missed you guys.

    A big hello to all those who know me.........noone ever seems to be in the chat room anymore.........did we get banned lol

    And a big "nice to meet you" to all those who don't know me. Mind you a lot of people who do know me pretend they don't..but THAT'S a whole other thread hehe

    A lot has been happening in my life lately. Today is the day I am handing in my resignation :hatparty: I have finally had enough of high acuity and low staffing and refuse to compromise my professional standard anymore. I will be telling them that too!
    It has broken my heart to see all the good people who I have worked with for years and who are like family get more and more stressed to the point of burn out, including myself. Management need to learn to value their nurses.

    The BIG BIG news is that I have met the absolute love of my life and am moving interstate in Australia to be with him. And get this..we would not have met if it had not been for allnurses.com!!!!! Through chatting and making friendships here we discovered each other. So a huge thankyou to Brian and all you wonderful people.

    I am feeling great as you can probably tell... this is the beginning of a brand new beautiful life and I am so happy.

    Thankyou to all my wonderful friends here and look forward to meeting the new friends I am sure I will make:kiss

    Congrats Aus Nurse! Congrats on the new guy in your life and your move. And also congrats on ditching an unsafe job situation. I too am looking into other options for the same reasons. Good luck with the move and the new job!!!! Imagine if all of us quit for that reason!! There'd be hardly any places left with their own non agency staff!! Hey, maybe we are onto something.....

    Great news aus, sounds like a match made in heaven. I've been to the chat room too and no ones been there. I was wondering where you were.
    God luck in your move your new mate and a new job when ever you are ready!!

    Speaking of Bloke............hehe
  13. by   aus nurse
    LOL Mary yep indeed speaking of bloke..........

    Hi to you Kaycee, yep I sure do miss the chat room gossip hehe..when I am moved I will have to make some times for us to catch up again and of course go back to just hanging out in there lol (OK OK twist my arm hehe)
    Fedup, yep I am glad to be outta there...5 more shifts to go..and COUNTING......we were discussing that the other day re all resigning at once, we reckon it would only take 6 to do it to make an impact on our small hospital...2 have gone from my unit already and 10 from elsewhere..they really should be getting the message!
    Vegas I too think it is way kewl that my man and I met through this bb...what a wonderful place this is

    Thankyou everyone for the good wishes..I just had to share with you all...I wanna shout it from the rooftops lol
    I AM SO HAPPY!!!!

    Oops hadn't mentioned it here..must have been on another thread......if not for my good friend Mary Dover none of this would have happened...she saw the potential between us and ever so delicately just kept reminding me till I finally could see it too lol

    So the hugest thankyou to Mary, I love ya:kiss
