    Thanks for letting me know what you decided bjm. I have a feeling you made the right choice for yourself. Part of the reason I took my position was also to learn something new in the nursing field. The worst that can happen is that you do not like it. There are so many opportunities for us nurses that you can move on to something else if need be.

    I have been at my new job for six weeks now, and I am very happy with my decision to take this position. I actually look forward to going to work for the first time in a long while! It is interesting work and I enjoy the smaller group I work with now.

    It has been very nice talking with you, and I hope you are very happy at your new nursing job. I think your gut is telling you that you made the right choice!! When do you start? Let me know how it goes after you have been there a little while. Congratulations.

    Hi dphrn. I start Nov 8th, a start date we agreed upon so that I would not have to reschedule doctors appts I had prior to accepting the position. I would love to keep you posted of how it goes. In the meantime, I would like to ask you 2 questions based upon the info you told me. You said that you do the pre-op and post-op but not the circulating. I won't ask about circulating. Can you tell me what you are repsonsible for in the preop and post op areas? I would appreciate any info you could send my way. I would greatly it and it would help me to prepare mentally during the next week prior to starting. Thanks.
