With some luck, a LOT of hard work and countless sacrifices, I am among the fortunate few who snagged their dream job right out of nursing school. Tomorrow I will don my patch-free scrubs, anything-but-white-shoes, and RN badge, and with a great deal of excitement (and a little trepidation), begin my orientation on the unit as a Cardio-Thoracic Critical Care nurse (woot!!!).
As a new RN - energized, enthusiastic, and no doubt credulous... I just want to say that am so pleased to be in this honorable profession and we are all Rock Stars!!
So there. (my up-lifting words to refer back to in a few weeks when I start wondering what the hell I got myself into... lol)
