I sent out a bunch of apps for a nursing assistant position and they all called back. It was nice to feel needed, lol. I will start a week-long training session on the 6th. It is a mini-training session for nursing students, so hopefully most of the stuff will be review. At the other hospital I was interested in, I would have had to commit to a month of training, which would have been hard to work around. I will be on a 40-bed med-surg floor, which is fine with me, it sounds like there will be lots of variety. I will have to adjust to a higher pt load though--at clinicals we only had one pt at a time. I'll be PRN, so my only obligation is that I have to work 2 weekend shifts per month. Is this a typical obligation for any of you? Even though I have school every other weekend, I think I can swing it. I want to work around my husband's schedule so that he can be at home (or at the office) with our son. I'm only doing 8-12 hours a week, max. But I'm thinking of finding a sitter for those times when our schedules would overlap. I've never used a sitter before other than the grandmas or close, trusted family friends. Maybe I will advertise at school. But I'm not crazy about the idea of hiring someone I don't really know. Well, that's been my Christmas break so far. Tomorrow I go for my physical. Then off to buy some non-white scrubs
! Yeah! Hope everyone is enjoying their holidays.
