Shift Work...

7-3 ... 3-11 ... 11-7 ... Well, for me it will be more like 3-11, 7p-7a, and occasionally 4 hour spurts.

I got a job!! I went for an interview today and they hired me right then. I'll now be working on the Nephrology unit. I've been battling with the decision of staying with Pediatrics during my final semester of school, and I think this is the right choice. I'll be working 16h per pay period so that's two 8h shifts or a 12h shift and a 4h shift every 2 weeks. Not too bad, and I can pick up extra hours if I think I can handle it once school starts.

So far everyone I have met on the Neph unit are really nice and welcoming, so I think this will be a very nice fit for my last few months of school, and who knows I may like it enough to stay on after I graduate. Only time.. and God... will tell.

My first shift is tomorrow 3-11. Everything has happened really quickly, but it's good to get in there before school starts and get all that orientation stuff over with. I work again on Saturday and then I should be on my own after that. :/

Anyway... just wanted to give a quick update on what's going on with me. Thanks for all your prayers!

Until.................................
