My new job...so far.

  1. Hi all.

    You might remember me....I was a staff RN and now working for a lawfirm.

    Well, I've been here for a little over a month, and so far it is okay. I have my own office, my own cases to work on, etc. It's very very quiet. Basically, I just do my work and they leave me alone. The only time I hear from the bosses is when they need something special. This suits my introverted personality just fine! lol

    I am trying to get used to sitting all day (I move around and stretch a lot!) and getting up early 5 days a week. But it is nice to have every weekend off so far. It's great that I can just leave my work and have lunch. No one has to "watch my work".

    I wonder if I should try to go to law school, but we'll see. Any RN attorneys out there with any advice?

    I do miss the patients a little bit, and miss some of the people at my old job. I've been in touch and nothing much has changed there.

    That's about it. The work is pretty interesting. There is hope and life after hospitals.

    Take care

    Nice to hear from you. Glad your new job is going well. Must indeed be strange going from patient care to that kind of environment. Sounds attractive too.

    congrats on your new position cherry,i know that it must be an adjustment to get used to not running around as much as you were when you were a staff nurse, but i'm quite sure you're not complaining about it. i actually like the running around (kinda crazy, right?) because i don't like to sit for too long. but i'm sure one day i will get to where you are. good luck and keep us posted on your progress.
