Work days, that is!!
I started my general orientation last Monday and worked an entire 40 hour week this past week. I've got a bad cold on top of it and have pretty much been miserable!
I have 3 more days of full time hours, then I will go on my per diem schedule! I've really missed my kids and Chris this past week! By the time I got home and we had supper, there was only like 2 hours left to have "family time". That's rough!! I really admire those who juggle full time jobs and family, I don't think I could do it all the time!
I haven't really done anything exciting this week, this part of orientation is all the "fluff" stuff. I had to take a 6 hour test on Wednesday! It was a performance based evaluation used to evaluate what kind of things you need to work on in orientation. Let me just tell you how horrible that was!! For one, I had to take the medical surgical version of the test, I guess because I've been out for so long. Thing is, I've never worked a day of med surg in my life and was very unfamiliar with the types of patients they showed! I think I would've done SO much better had I taken the critical care version!! I was so happy when a cardiac scenario popped up on the video!! Heart and lung - yes. Orthopedics - no! I should get my results mid week and I'm not looking forward to it!! LOL
It is really neat to see the changes that have taken place since I worked there last in February 2003! Most of the paperwork is the same, except there is about an additional 20 sheets to fill out! LOL I've ran into so many people that I used to work with and they have welcomed me with open arms. That is such a GREAT feeling!! It feels good to be back and I know 2 days a week there will do me good!!
Not much else going on, I haven't had time to do anything else. We're all looking forward to our vacation coming up soon! We bought an air conditioner for our camper. Chris and a friend are going to install that today.
I'll leave you with a few layouts.
