I have just agreed to a new assignment in Southern Oregon on a Lake. It's a Mon-Fri 8:30 to 5:30pm, with no weekends, and no holidays..
. Unfortunately there is no opportunity for OT...but I can live with that. It is doing something that I have already done, working with a residency program in a clinic/hospital. Mostly indigent pt's and the hospital is owned by the community.
I will be the only LPN in this position, and I have been told I will be given a WHOLE week to orient! Can't believe my good fortune, as the references for this place has been very good. But you never know until you get there...so we shall see.
The new agency is Aureus Medical, and they're paying for everything including linens, microwave...TV..the works! Not only that they're also paying for my titers, my CXR(as I can't do PPDs), and since mine was five years ago, they required a new one. And they're paying for the drug screen which is kind of usual. And the pay is still good also!
I start in as soon as I get my license approved which should be in two weeks. I'm not sure I'm ready to have the possiblity of dealing with some snow, but this position will be a good addition to my already lengthy resume. I will be close to the Cali border, and close to where I evidentally want to end up.
I'm sorry I didn't see your post until now. I hope you haven't left yet, because I will still be here when you get here. If you see this, give me a holler and I will meet you at place of your choosing. PM me and let me know you saw this.
