Well, just a little update.....I was offered a position at a nearby hospital on an oncology floor. I will even be getting paid about $2.00 more an hour! The staff seems very warm and genuine, hopefully it will last. My manager seems very nice too. I've been off work for a few weeks now, so I need to get back into the swing of things. I start my "orientation" next week. I hope I am up for this. I'm going to stay positive, I'm going to learn alot. Every time I mention to someone I am going to work oncology they sound disappointed. But, hey, I won't know unless I try it right. Besides, I just want to get my year in and then try to get into home health....Any suggestions for revving myself up for the new job???
Thanks all for your support!!!
Way to GO AMY...Yeaaaaaaaah! Congrats on the new position..
Isn't wonderful that you will be paid more...
Suggestions for reviving youself:
Forget the experience you had with the other place...it is behind you now.. Thankfully..
Go with an open ear and a closed mouth...
. No mention of the other situation to those you meet in this new position. Make the same statement everytime someone asks " where did you work before...and why did you leave".....-" It wasn't a good match"...period. Always be positive on the job...and go the extra mile.
Then enjoy your new surroundings...throw yourself into learning as much as you can. Ask questions...find related CEUs.....sign up for classes.........stretch yourself. Be open to instructions from those who have been there....and who you see have a desire, to do their best in caring for those assigned to them. If the person assigned to you doesn't want to share all they know with you....find someone who is willing to be as a resourced for you. And drain their brains dry!...:chuckle
Best of Luck to you Amy....I'm sure you will do very well...
