Hi All! I’ve missed you!!! It’s been awhile since I’ve posted and wanted to touch base and let you know what I’ve been up to!
First off, you may have noticed some changes to my site! There is soooo much to learn when it comes to creating a site and having a blog, so I have been working on completing tutorials and attending webinars, and am learning soooo much from the experts out there! I have changed menu titles and have added new pages so far, but there will be much more to come as I continue to learn and tweak things along the way. Keep a close eye on the site so you don’t miss a thing!
Secondly, I wanted you to know that I’ve been “away” from the blog lately because I’ve been in the process of getting a new job! A couple months ago I started to keep my eyes and ears open, just for anything that may spark my interest. Not that I am unhappy in my current position, but….it just hasn’t been filling my cup. Some time ago, I decided that my current position just wasn’t hitting the mark, the high standard we each should have for the team we are part of and the environment we work in. I decided, darn it…it is time for my work life to be good enough and to hit that mark!! A number of people have said to me “you know, the grass isn’t always greener…”, and I definitely know and acknowledge that, but I sure am looking to find the right shade of green for me!
So….I had applied for a pretty standard RN job and things really snowballed from there! On my way out of the interview, they mentioned to me that they had an Assistant Manager RN position open in the department, and encouraged me to think about it and look into the job posting. So I did….I got an interview….then got 2 more interviews after that….and received the job offer last week! Ahhh!! It has been a process and something I have put a lot of thought into for sure. I am excited…but also have that unsettled, uneasy feeling that always comes with change and the unknown. This new position is not in oncology, and my entire 12 year nursing career has been focused in oncology. It is hard to let go of something you have done and have known for so long, something you have poured your heart and soul into, something you have spent so much time and energy on, but at the same time, it is exciting and refreshing to be headed in a new direction!! This new role will allow me to focus on my passion for coaching staff and promoting a WellNurseLife with my team! I will have the chance to focus on preventative care and wellness with patients, as well as, chronic disease management, both of which are new interests of mine. I have a number of ideas brewing for this new role and am excited to see what lies ahead! Maybe this change will even help me with my entrepreneurial endeavors and vision!
So thank you for your patience while I have been away from the blog…learning about blogging and realigning my nursing career. I hope you are finding the good in life, and as always, Wishing You Well,
