new job

  1. Started a new job Monday. I'm a school nurse in a new job - same district just a new school. We have a rash of flu going around. Today we had 127 kids absent. Has been a real crazy time for the health office. Everything went really well for me. I saw about 40 kids today. I'm a little nervous - I'm on a trial basis here and really want this job - I think I did ok. Anyone ever get a trial on a job they want and not get it?

    Hi cpgrn,

    Congratulations on your new job. Being nervous is normal. I have never heard of anyone not getting a job after completing the probation period. Just show them your ethusiasm and tell them you want the job.

    I just started a new job as well. I started last week. I was nervous. I'm just completing the second week of orientation. I am now becoming comfortable with what I'm doing.

    Good luck, take it one day at a time.

    cpgrn... i know how you feel, i prn'ed for our school nurse last year, had kids in droves come in was a bit overwhelmed at first,needless to say i had a new respect for school nurses by the time the day was over. Here in mo most of the schools are shut down for the rest of the wk due to the flu!!!
