I have been working on this for awhile, but I didn't want put it out there on blog land till I really knew the details. A few days ago I got my final offer from Community Hospital. I accepted. Even though I just about wanted to cry my eyes out when I told my manager.
I will be floating between NICU, peds, and ED! The people in the know call it the ED, ER is the wrong term. Which I have keep reminding myself, because I know so little about ED that I can't even call it by the right name. I will start in NICU just to learn the system and then float to any of the hospitals, based on their need.
New hospital - where I don't have any negative relationships to things
New unit that is very uncomfortable for me.
Growing and stretching always leads to solid personal discovery.
Significantly more money - BUT that is not the most important part to me
All I know if NICU, it will be good to not be a one trick pony
I am staying PRN in NICU, I hope - that is still in the process
PRN = as needed, working twice a month at least
New unit that is VERY uncomfortable for me
They only wear solid Navy scrubs - BORING
I will miss my support group. I am so blessed with the greatest friends at work.
No benefits. Which I don't need with Josh's job, but that also mean so paid maternity leave. (IN THE FUTURE!)
Requires a degree of flexibility that may be uncomfortable at time, but I will go in expecting that
