Finally starting work
- 0Apr 20, '10 by itsmejuli GuideYeah, after being hired at the end of February, and attending workplace orientation last month I am finally going to start working this weekend.
I'm an LPN and its been a long wait for a job. I'm thrilled! This job is going to be perfect for me. I'll be working 7a to 7p Sat and Sun which will carry me through the LPN-RN transitional program which I start in Aug. I'm also pretty well guaranteed a job with the same facility upon gaining my RN license.
I'll be working in an LTC/SNF, which is what I want to do after getting RN.
Lucky for me I have no children at home and I'm single. It'll be a bit of a change having to work weekends but it'll also be great having week days off when the parks and beaches aren't as crowded.

My husband also works weekends (he's a tattoo artist, it's his busiest time), so our "weekend" is Tuesday-Wednesday. It makes life so much easier; everything from grocery shopping to scheduling doctors appointments is pretty much stress-free! Less traffic all over the place. Congrats on starting your job, and good luck with the LPN-RN!It'll be a bit of a change having to work weekends but it'll also be great having week days off when the parks and beaches aren't as crowded.
