    Thanks everyone!

    Sandra, I had to identify the rhythms and treatment of 20 electrocardiogram strips. I've taken a two continuing ed courses over the years, but I even impressed myself that I could remember, and pass this test. Does that make sense, I don't want to insult you by being too simple or two much over your head, so if I'm still lot clear, please ask.

    She does want me to learn a bit more about pace makers.

    The unit I'm going to is a Telemetry floor (continuous cardiac monitoring (ECG)). We are connected to Progressive Cardiac Care (PCU) and may get their overflow patients, with the same manager, so cardiac is a big thing with the unit I'm moving to. (I'm switching from neuro to medical-telemetry).

    It's a bit stimulating to be learning new things, which I usually try to do ongoing, but have gotten lazy lately.

    okay friend
    so the grass may not be greener
    but what if the garden knomes are cuter?
    and what if there are some nice flowers and a cute picket fence around this lawn!??!

    I'm happy for you, you need this, although I know that you are the type of person who could survive in any area - meaning that you're strong and a fantastic nurse, maybe in this area you can not only survive , but flourish!!!!!!!!
    good luck with everything , WOOT!

    Sounds nice! Congrats on the change of scenery. I think there are some nice trees in your new yard. And is that a bird house?
