And so I am hired. I will be working at a psych hospital as a psychiatric nurse. I'll be working graveyard on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights in 12 hour shifts for awhile, until I get my foot sufficiently in the door to get a day shift. The nice thing about nights is that I get a 3.00 an hour shift differential added onto my hourly wage, which rocks. And I will also get another buck an hour for being the charge nurse, as there is only one at night, and it looks like that will be me. Ultimately, dear friends, that means I won't be around on those nights for the most part. However, do look for me on and off during the rest of the week. I'm so excited. I have a week of days for orientation starting the 16th, and so my graves won't start until the following week. I have my brand new nursing shoes and my brand new scrub sets. I just need a new nurses watch and a notebook to be ready. And...and eyeliner. Because a girl can't function without THAT. ::Grin:: Thanks to all of you for your support and well wishes!! Love you guys muchly, as Amthy might say.
