I am very excited, yesterday I accepted a job in the PICU in our city. It is in a big children's hospital, and sees pretty much everything! I feel like I am going to get tons of experience there, and I'm really excited. I am coming from 2 1/2 years of Peds ED experience at a hospital that does both adults and peds. I enjoy the ED but I really think ICU is more my forte. That's the good part.
The bad part about getting a new job is having to tell the old job I am leaving. I did that today and boy was it tough. I really hate to leave (although hopefully i will be able to stay PRN, I'm not quite ready to cut the cord completely). My boss, even though he knew I was planning on leaving, didn't make it easy for me to say so. I felt a little defeated when it was over, although I know I'm doing the right thing for me. I guess they have to be somewhat negative to you about your new job in hopes to get you to stay.
Blech, I'm glad that's over. I don't start my new job for 6 weeks, so I have plenty of time to spend with my old friends before I leave. I am very excited though about my new opportunities ahead! Prepare for lots of questions from me!
