I’m Actually Going To Do This Nurse Thing!

March 13, 2008

Well there’s one less thing on my mind now…

I was hired yesterday at The Methodist Hospital as a graduate nurse on the oncology unit. I am SO excited. It’s perfect for me: oncology, eight-hour day shifts, and a great company (#10 on the Fortune 100 best companies to work for). I start June 2! Of course, I have to graduate first.

I think it was the easiest interview of all time. In fact, I’m pretty sure they knew they were going to give me an offer before I came in. The manager asked me one question (why do you want to do oncology?), told me about the unit, and gave me the job. I told her I would talk it over with my fiance (because I’m all grown up like that) and call her back later in the day. I accepted, and I’m so glad I did.

In other exciting news…

  • Decisions I’ve made about the wedding in the last two weeks: 0
  • Hours I’ve had to relax during “spring break”: about 4
  • Recent overdrafts on my checking account: 2
  • Clinical trials I’ve enrolled in to bring in some extra cash and prevent future overdrafts: 2
  • Bird flu vaccines received: 1
