    Thanks for reading and for your comment! Sounds like we may have had some experiences in common, at least the bottom line of dealing with work situations we weren't necessarily hug fans of!

    Hey SoldierNurse22! I posted a comment on your article "To the Beginning" a few months ago about how I was inspired by your articles. I just wanted to share with you that I got my dream job in oncology and am starting next Monday!! I hope you're doing well as a NICU nurse.

    Hey Amistad,

    That's awesome! I'm so excited for you! Oncology is such an interesting and rewarding field. As a new grad, try not to be overwhelmed by the sheer amount of info coming at you--you will absorb it over time and in one of the best ways possible: through experience, not just book learning.
