I'm making a change. And none too soon. I just accepted a job in the ER at Timpanogos Regional Hospital. I'm excited and nervous. I have always wanted to work in the ER. I did my internship in the ER and loved it. I remember when I was at Ricks college I volunteered in the ER. I had no idea what I wanted to do as a major back then. I just volunteered because I thought it was sooo cool. You would think that maybe I would have recognized this as a hint of what I might want to do for a career, but NO, not me, I never gave it a second thought.
About the 'none too soon' comment. I have worked at my current job for 18months now. In that 18months I have had 4 different managers and I am one of the oldest nurses here (in terms of starting date). Now that's what I call HIGH TURNOVER, wow. They were understaffed all summer long when we had very few kids here. I hope they get it together before Swine Flu and RSV season. But frankly, I really don't want to be around to find out.
Soooooooo, I have one full night shift left and then it's good bye to my 5am-bored-silly posts. No more night shifts and no more boredom, I'm guessing. :)
