This morning started out like any other...trying to figure out what books I needed for the day. Then I called human resources/nurse recruiter at the hospital to see what the status on my employment application was. I was asked to come in for an interview after my class this afternoon.
When I arrived (I was early) the nurse recruiter met me and took me back to her office. I had just barely sat down and she said "what would you say if I was able to offer you a two year scholarship
that would fully pay for school until you graduate, put you immediately into the externship program, and then when you graduate you will go directly into the internship program. This is going to happen in the ED where I know that your main interest is". I was totally speechless for the first time in my life!! I could only say "where do I sign?". This is a dream come true. It will relieve the pressure of having to pay back the thousands of dollars in student loans, give me an income that hubby and I so desparately need right now, and put me into my dream environment in emergency medicine. I don't think I've been this happy since I got married!
And now I've got to study. Yuk! But at least now I'm really, really, motivated!!!
