After 5 years of schooling, and 5 months of job searching I finally got a job yesterday!!!!

 

Say hello to the newest Pediatric ICU nurse at a well known children's hospital!!

 

I was accepted by a new grad program there that provides 16 weeks of training and preceptorship after that.

adinal and by-the-lake like this.

Congrats!! I'm so happy for you. I know it's really rough out there for new nursing grads; you must have been pretty impressive to land that gig. Enjoy celebrating. All your hard work paid off. Hope you love working in PICU.

Hi old friend! :-) I asked about you during our OB rotation and you were not there, but I was on  your unit for a couple of days.

 

I start on the 15th. Super excited!!

Congrats... is this the hospital with the red and purple colors?  If so, I spent many many nights there with DS when he was younger in the ER. (hurried past many many other hospitals to get to this one)  The staff is just fab-u-lous and I can not say enough wonderful things about them.  Crossing everything that DS's asthma is under control and we don't need to go back, but this particular place is 1st on my list for care!

Yep, that's the one! :-) I'm so sorry your ds was sick and had to go there. My dd, too, spent some time there. Everyone I talk to says the staff is happy and loves working there.

He has asthma and the child life specialists are super.  Getting a toddler,preschooler and young kiddo to do breathing treatments while freaking out because they can not breathe, because they are in the ER, because all these new folks are around them just does not work well... But this one particular ER has the magic touch.  Not to mention the free wagon rides!

Congrats, I'm sure they are lucky to have you!

Thanks again for your joy! Really I feel like without MDC I would not have kept my sanity at times. I was also inspired by a lot of moms here who have started their own businesses and gone back to school.

 

I start on Monday! :-)
