It's been awhile, so let's catch up...
I started my "Critical Care" career at the end of March 2012. I'm on a Cardiac step down unit or IMU, (intermediate care unit). Small, 7 beds total, 2 nurses, (one Charge that takes 3, and the other nurse takes max 4).
Cardiac...vast, huge, LARGE SUBJECT. And NO, I am NOT feeling it. It's hard. The people are nice, helpful. Of course, every unit has its bad eggs. I've been fortunate to have been pelted by those eggs on each shift.
I'll make 6mos at the end of September. I'm in the process of deciding my next move. Love the small department, hate the cult of personalities: the know-it-all; the bipolar charge, and the above it all tech. Trying to find my happy place. Don't want to leave the hospital, too many years invested and it's hard to get on at another system without going through that PBDS crap. So, I'll stay where I am system wise for now. Thinking of going agency within the system: make a crap load and work only 2 days a week!
Happy place. Is it a myth, a dream or a fairytale??? Possibly, it's all the above. Would love to be a screenplay writer, or novelist, yet, I don't know what to write about. It's like my imagination has dried up, nothing original. JK Rowling, Stephanie Meyers, Suzanne Collins...why can't I come up with a fantasy that could be built upon??? I sit there with my little book and pen, and nothing spills onto the pages. Maybe I could write a blog about how everyday NO new ideas come to me. (smiles)
Oh well. Enough for now. I have to work a 12hr shift tomorrow. YAY. LOLL!!! The fun thing I do get to look forward to next week is that I plan on shopping at Nordstrom, my fave store! I plan on elevating myself into LEVEL 2 in the Rewards program!!! LOLLL!!! I'm only $405 away from it!!! Shopping, now that's an original idea!
