just had to post this ..... as yoou know if you have read my other posts that i was joining the ortho or team and was very nervous .... BUT I LOVE IT!!!!!!
the team are great (apart from GOD, sorry i mean one surgeon who thinks he is but thats another story). the work is amazing and really challenging but i get it.
also we now have 5 new starters in our department so i am no longer the most junior staff member and my, what a difference it makes. i am now treated as a fully fledged member of staff. i am most often scrubbed but also i am second qualified in a or now which means i am the most senior circulator. an now i am able to use my own initiative everything is falling into place.
just wanted to let you know so that other newly qualifieds can know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and yes it can seem a long and painful road but it is so worth it in the end
