I'm so excited!

My background is in pediatrics, but I've done time in psych nursing, which is another specialty I love. It's given me a lot of valuable experiences, especially as I've moved up the ladder into administrative roles/education, but while working on my MSN, I decided it was time for me to return to the medical world with my little ones.

So...I took a chance and applied to the local big-name children's hospital, which is a place I love and have always wanted to work. I applied to two different positions. Interview #1 didn't work out. Interview #2, the position on a transitional unit that I wanted the most? OFFER LETTER RECEIVED THIS WEEK. Audreysmagic is going back to her roots!

I'm a little wistful to be leaving my current employer, as I have a lot of great co-workers here, but it's time to do what's right for my career, especially as I want to do a post-masters PNP (my MSN focus is Clinical Nursing Education). (They made it easier on me this morning, LOL, when I arrived to do an in-service and they dumped a bunch of other stuff in my lap. :-D) And it's a dream job at my dream hospital. I'm sitting here pinching myself to believe it, honestly. Just had to share my excitement with those who would understand it!

I was going for the Psych Nursing forum and but got off at the wrong exit.

I'm glad I got lost for a moment and found some good news from Audrey Smagic!

The best to you in your new position, Audrey!

Now: How do I get back on the Specialties Interstate?

Thanks, guys! I went away for the weekend and my current job welcomed me back with a burst pipe issue... ? So this made me smile for sure when I logged back in!
