    I'm sorry, sweetie. Being laid off totally bites. I agree it's in God's hand now. If He thinks you need the job you just interviewed for you'll get it and if He thinks it's not the right fit you won't. Try and enjoy the unemployment and take some time to unwind and catch your breath. Even though I never want anyone to lose their jobs it can often be a stepping stone to something better. Hugs.

    I am so sorry to hear about your lay-off. I think of all the professions suffering through these bad times, the healthcare provider cut-backs at hospitals and other facilities will be felt the most by the public. I guess it will take some calamitous event causing patient harm traced back to the cutbacks, that change will take place.

    Hopefully it won't come to that before management comes to their senses. I'll hold all good thoughts that you will be hired back very soon.

    Thanks again, everyone. I am really in good shape, emotionally. Relieved and happy now.

    I cannot believe that an informatics nurse was let go, I am so sorry for you. However, I admire your positive attitude and will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

    :icon_hug: So very sorry, Sue.

    This might just be the best thing for you since that job was dragging you down; but, I know it isn't pleasant when the pink slip comes, mo matter how bad the job is.

    You will do great in onc and this little break is probably just what you need to get a much deserved rest before diving into your new job.

    LOL I saw your post that said that you almost didn't want the other position, just because of that you are going to get it! That is the way life works.

    I am glad that even though you were laid off you aren't upset by it. You are headed for bigger and better things!

    Thanks again, all.

    Well, it took my mother until this past Monday to ask if I could come down (they live 300 miles away) and help out with my father, who has been recently diagnoses with Parkinsons. I stayed until today and got a lot of things in order, including Dad. I'll be spending 2 - 3 days a week there for the timebeing.

    This lay-off WAS a God thing. It couldn't have come at a more necessary time. We need to move closer and I need to help with Dad. He is NOT going to a nursing home.

    Caring for my father, who is lucky enough to be surrounded by people who will care for him, has reinforced a love I had - LTC. Hate the regulations and paperwork, can't think of a group of people who need me more.
