not to be a Debbie Downer, but....

I am not working at the same hospital at this time. So frustrating. I just felt like I was "getting" the time management down. I know I still have far to go, but I just felt like it will come with time. Now I will not have that opportunity.
Everyone keeps telling me that God has a plan, something better. I just want to care for others. This is what I do know, as I've been trying to sort through this:
  • Must work with geriatric pts. LOVE them.
  • Must be physical job. I can't stand a butt job.

  • Would prefer a steady schedule. I was off kilter with the constantly changing schedule.

  • Would like to work within team, not isolated.


So I am walking on. All prayers are appreciated, really. God is my rock, and I will still praise Him.

I am so incredibly sorry to hear this! I just don't know how they can just dispose of someone like that! All the training that you had, it seems tha it would be financially worthwhile to at least have you try another unit or something! I'm stressed out as I'm just reading your post. I start a residency on a neuro/medsurg ICU this week and I'm nervous!!

I am so sorry to hear about the dismissal! : ( I know it seems devastating, but there are many, many opportunities available (and you already know what you love to do)and you will find the job "meant" for you! Years from now, you will look at his as a growth experience.

In the meantime, don't give up on nursing and after all you have been through you must take care of yourself. You lost your mom - can it get more stressful than that? :(

Regroup and know you have the intelligence and ability to be a great nurse!

You have had a hard few weeks, and I am so sorry. I wish there was some way I could wrap it all up and make it all better for you.

I will be sending my positive thoughts and prayers your way. Im sure HE has a plan for you.

I am so sorry!! I can't believe they would let you go after all that time invested in you! It sucks.. (my mom hates that word and would not be happy I used it on your blog lol)

I love working with geriatrics too. I worked in a nursing home for 3 yrs and absolutely loved it. I am not an ER kind of nurse and like my routine and don't really want to get too many surprises too often lol.. have you thought about working there? It was really one of the most fulfilling jobs I have had.

If that is not your cup of tea there are so many other possibilities out there...keep looking and don't give up!

Things are going to turn around for you and I know you'll find THE job that you're going to loooooovvvveee forever [okay, not forever but for a long, long time].

PS, I totally know what you mean about feeling overwhelmed scanning in pictures... I have to give myself a pep talk every time I look at the huge stack of photos.. eep!

And someone had seen my cards and asked if I could make thank you cards for their wedding! Crazy, huh?! :) Soooo honored!
