Last day of ICU, kind of…Friday Favorites 2013: Week 36

Friday, September 6, 2013

Wow…so I’m completely done with full-time bedside nursing.  I think I’m kind of in shock.  My orientation for supervisory kind of stuff was supposed to start at the end of the current schedule which runs until the first week of October.  I figured they would want to start the orientation earlier as I was promised 4 weeks and that would mean an awful lot of piecing together night supervisor coverage until I was trained.  So, as I suspected, they are moving the training up and it starts NEXT WEEK!  Last night was my last night working in ICU and I say “kind of” because of course I got floated!  I went to the ED for four hours and then I could have come back to ICU or stayed in the ED.  I elected to stay in the ED just because I know a lot of my co-workers don’t like to float and I honestly didn’t mind.  Plus, no one in ICU KNEW it was my last night there so it wasn’t like it was anything special.  Anyways, I will be seeing everyone as supervisor, so it’s not like I’m leaving them forever.  It was just a surreal feeling knowing that everything will soon change.

So…on to my favorites from the week…enjoy!
