Okay, you know how I have been really stressed out about all the crap that is going down at work? Well, I have been applying to other jobs, namely the Heart and Vascular ICU (HVICU) and the Medical ICU (MICU). I know that I don't want to go to the floor if at all possible; I just don't enjoy that area. So I started applying to critical care. But the response wasn't that good- they all seemed to be looking for someone with more experience. I was getting frustrated because I felt like this whole GN Float Pool thing was really being counted against me. I felt like I couldn't get out and that I would be forced into a position because there was nothing else available, not because it was a position that even remotely interested me.
So, I emailed the president of the union, and the Chief Nursing Officer (like, the boss of all nurses... kind of like the CFO or the CEO, but for nursing.) And I got a response.
A good response.
And I will probably have interviews with both the MICU and HVICU soon. So please pray. Pray that the interviews go well and that I will have the wisdom to choose the right position. And that I won't let myself be consumed with worry about this.
