Okay WOW!

  1. Some of you know that I got my first 90 day review at this new hospital that I am working for (I was agency after being a LTC RN for 4 years, was scared being agency but found a company that gave me support and love for who I am and what I can do! Took on the job with them!). Well..it went BEYOND what I even imagined as Okay!

    First...it was explained that my personality and proactive nature was top of the list. That I tend to be realistic and proactive and this has already within 90 days increased moral to the point that after 3 years of having a hard time getting nurses....my floor is being requested!!!!!! I guess they were having a hard time getting people to work that floor! WOW...ME? Can't be just me...but they insisted that I brought a fun flair to nursing that was appropriate and contagious! COOL!

    Then...they said I am going to be trained as manager! I was like ???? But they said I was a strong nurse with the right ethics and probelm solving skills and they want me in management, in fact, to train for an administrative position within two years! OMGosh! I reminded them I was ADN..and they said "well you earned the right to make history here my dear! You will be the first ADN Administrator here!". I about fainted!

    I also...yeah!!!!!! Will train student RN's and preceptors as I was hoping! YES!!!!!!! Whoooooo hoooooooooo!

    IN addition, they know I need day shifts and they are thinking about making a mid day/swing shift and I will be the first so I can get home at a decent hour!

    I will also be doing classes for the hospital on various issues I have shown interest and experience in...like the many lectures I have done on here about treating the patient not the machine results!

    And lastly....a 4 buck raise per hour, and more in March once my relief management comes to play!!!!!!!!!

    GUYS!!!!!!! Take my advice on this...don't settle for long at places you feel negativity with! I went agency, found my niche..and look at this!!!! I am not different than most...just got tired of the BS and said I would be myself no matter what! IT WORKED! When I am able to be myself...better things happen because I am more relaxed and confident !

    AND BIG TIME thank you all so very much! I know for sure and in my heart that it is the support of you all here that has helped me not only to make the scary leap to agency, then supported me in taking on the hospital job even though I was intimidated (out of practice), reminded me to be myself, and complimented/thanked me for my advice/support! You all helped me to realize that myself is a pretty good person after all and to go with it! You were right!!!!!!

    Huggles to all...you all helped to make this possible and I am honestly on cloud nine!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Awesome, Triage! I have read your posts, maybe even participated in a few threads, and always like what you have to say. You inspire me. I am so happy that a good thing has happened to a fellow nurse (well, I'll be a fellow in May). Congratulations and keep us posted on your climb! I wish you worked at my hospital.

    My first response was rats, another good nurse gone to the "dark side". We need nurses like you on the floor! LOL

    Just kidding. I think that's awesome and I'm really happy for you. Congratulations!

    [font="arial black"]big, big congratulations!!!

    it's so good to know some places are still able to recognize good nurses and reward their efforts, and see the big picture of making "all things better!" i read on this bb at times about such abysmal working conditions/places and such mean and small-minded ppl (workers and admin), i get discouraged. this is "what the [nursing] world needs now!!" :melody:

    [font="arial black"]you rock, triage!!!
