Well for me anyway. So a few months ago I took a job in the ER and ended up relocating. (not a big move from where I lived but new city, didn't know anyone, big changes going on with me all around). I have absolutely LOVED working in the ER. Sure not everyday is awesome, but I am learning tons and just love the overall environment and just can't ever imagine going anywhere else. I work for a great company, the pay is awesome for a newbie, their is such unity unlike I ever saw on the floors between all levels of the providers. The Docs are wonderful most of the time and really have our back. Watched a Doc go straight up Ninja to a patient that was acting out to the Nurse. He doesn't put up with that when it comes to us.
Anyway it's just been a wonderful experience but a very lonely experience having no friends near by. Well I convinced a friend I met from these boards to come apply to one of the openings we had, he wanted to be in the ICU (still might ) but I bribed him to the greener pastures that are the ER.
Now from AllNurses have I not only met some wonderful friends, but I have a NEW CO-Worker to ROCK THE ER WITH.
Any guesses on who? They post on these boards a lot. We have never actually met yet, we will Sunday, but I will finally have a friend in this new town also. I am so excited. I guess though I better be careful about venting about my co-workers here though. HAHAHA
My new co-worker and AN compadre is;
DRUM ROLL PLEASE
:D Our ER better watch out!!!! I got a new partner in crime in town!!!!
