Yippeeeeee!!! I Got A Job!!!

  1. Well gang, it's official! I start the rn refresher program in Dayton, Ohio on January 13th at the same hospital I was born at! I"m so excited, I've been grinning so hard my cheeks are starting to hurt...but the hurt is GOOD because I am going back to work in a career field that I have always dearly loved...nursing! Ahhhhhhhh....it's so refreshing to have been given this blessing right at Christmas!

    I will be traveling alone by car very early this coming Saturday morning to my daughter's in Indy where I will hang out while preparing for my transition back to being a Buckeye once again after soooooooo many years away! Indianapolis is only an hour's drive from where I will be working, so spending Christmas and New Years with my daughter, son-in-law, and seven grandkids will be plenty of exercise for me to prepare me for the halls of nursing again!

    Please pray/send up positive thoughts for me to have safe travels this weekend! I've waited five long years for this gift of returning to nursing, and now it's finally here!

    I'm looking forward to enrolling at Wright State in their RN-BSN program by Fall 2003 (I found out that I can't start before that time frame unless I take their online RN-BSN course which starts twice a year...in the spring and the fall).

    Well, I just wanted to share my wonderful blessings with my Allnurses siblings!

    So happy for you! It's always great to get back to doing what you love. Even a little scary and unnerving.
    Best of wishes! Be safe during the holiday season. Will say a pray as we light the Advent candle.

    Wow, that is great! I'm kinda jealous, I'd love to go back to the Buckeye state too, wouldn't mind going back to my old stompin' ground, Toledo Hospital.

    Godspeed and safety on your journey, and CONGRATS!!

    Hi Vegas! Hi l.rae!

    Thank ya very much for the congrats and prayers for safe travel!

    Yes, going back to the Big Buckeye I am I am!

    Leah, I'll email you my daughter's phone number so you can call me there next week. I'll be in Dayton Tuesday night to stay over at my girlfriends (she doesn't know it yet ), then go for my appointments with Human Resources on Wednesday, after that I will do some apartment hunting so I can land a place to settle and get all moved in before I start my job mid-January.

    Anyone else in Ohio want to get together with Leah and I???????
    Post here and let us know!
