Perhaps it's time.............
For a resurection!!
Of this blog that is. I'm not gonna make any promises but I'm gonna give it an honest effort. Now that I'm an ED nurse I have TONS of great stories!! I have been an ED nurse for almost a year now. I think. Ha ha. I honestly cannot remember if I transferred to the ED in Nov of last year or January of this one. I could find out I'm sure, but honestly I don't care that much!!
I'm still on the fence as to whether ED nursing is for me too. I said I would give it a year and then reassess but closing in on that year I'm just not sure. Some days I love it and some days I utterly hate it. And then there is the in between ones too :-) Perhaps it is just the 12 years of inpatient nursing I did and how different the ED is. It could be any number of things, many of them which I could name but will just leave alone here. For now though, I'm staying put. Really where else would I go? I've done most of what my hospital has to offer......floor nursing, critical care, MET nurse and now ED. All that is left is NICU as our pediatric floor is a combined adult/pedi floor so holds no interest for me. And I think I'll save NICU for later in my career when my back is gone :p
Next post I won't just mutter along absently but will actually give you a story!! See ya then.
