Hey, guess what....I got a job!

Yes I did! My first job as a CNA! WoooooFreakingHoooo! I am so geeked. I applied at our local hospice and they called me today and welcomed me on board. I can't wait to start work.

It dawned on me earlier, I have no idea what my pay will be! I don't really care, I want the experience. This is an important part of my journey. Wow, I''m employed!

That is fabulous! What area of the Hospital will you be working in?

Hey Pinky!

Not a hospital, hospice. Most of our hospitals wont take you unless you have 6 months to a year experience in LTC, at least the ones around here. I also talked to a neighbor that is a nurse at one of the local hospitals and she said that our hospitals would rather hire nurse externs. But thats ok, I really had my sites set on this hospice.

That is wonderful. I imagine you will learn a lot at the hospice. Good luck with that.

So, that is really good. But you do realize that you are going to be crying a lot with that job, right? Oh, speaking of hospice--did you read my post called "Mercy" on my Greatest Hits?

I think the hospice will help prepare you to chat with folks about bad news. And bad news is part of being a Nurse. I think hospice is a very, very good place to learn communications skills that you can take with you anywhere.

Every experience is a good experience one way or the other.

Wow, I'm so deep.

I must be tired. ;)

Oh, before I forget, congrats on the new job!

Thanks Scott, Pinky and Neumed. I am tickled about getting this job! There are a few concerns with it being hospice and all. I just hope I can keep from being all sappy and weepy and be able to do my job. I have dealt with the death of many ferrets, but not with people.

And yes Neumed, you are deep! LOL
