LOOONG day at work...

So yesterday I worked my first shift alone and by alone I mean not "orienting" anymore.  I had the whole 2nd floor to myself & man was I busy!! I mean the only time I had to sit down during my whole shift was during lunch, I was slammed!  The good thing about that though was that the day flew by.  And I have to say that I actually enjoyed it.  Although I was pretty sore this morning it wasn't like my 1st day off where everything hurt, this morning it was really only my back that was hurting. I was scheduled to work this morning as well but I got a call at 5 am saying that I was put on call.  I guess that's what they do when they have low census.  Bummer b/c that means that I'll only get one day this week & I was hoping on at least 2.  Oh well. I scheduled myself to work Monday which is Memorial Day, so hopefully I'll get holiday pay for that day.  I like this whole deal of getting to schedule my days, but it's hard to schedule your days when you don't know what you have coming up.  Anyhoo, like I said I actually enjoyed my day yesterday.  The charge nurse was really sweet & my patient's were great.  I was actually disappointed that I wouldn't get to see them again today, but I still don't know if I would like to work in this hospital once I get my license.  I guess I'll just have to see when the time gets closer. 

No work this weekend, my baby girl & I are off on a mommy/daughter camping trip that I am totally looking forward to. I'll try to take some pics & post them on here. 

I hope everyone else has a great weekend & a great Memorial Day!!


  1. Sounds like things are going good. Have a great time camping!

  2. When you become a nurse just remember the bad times as a tech. The nursing assistants are your best friend as a nurse. Do them right.

  3. I second that emotion, NP Odyssey.
