Tomorrow is the first day...

  1. Hey Guys

    Well here it goes....I applied at An Area hospital Trauma 1 as a critical care tech. Got the gig !!! So psyched. Anyway, my goal is to become an ER nurse when I grauated Rn school next May (04)
    So I figured why not get in to make sure this is what I want to do? Tomorrow is the BIG DAY! I will be precepting of course, for six weeks! Is that the norm length? I went in for my orientation to the floor last week and loved it!!

    But I just wanted to say that I am SO NERVOUS and PSYCHED.
    So wish me luck guys! If you have any words of advice........

    Way to go!!!

    Keep us up to date on your adventure. I have been an ER RN for 8 years and was a tech for 3 year before that. It will be nice to hear your excitement about things that seems mundane to us old-timers
