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!!
