Thats awesome Katie!

Good news.............. I got the job!!!! I got the call today and they offered me a nursing position at the Veterans Hospital. Its been a long process (5 months).......boy the government is thorough and you have to jump through so many hoops just to land a position. I was starting to fret because people kept saying (that work there) that they weren't hiring any part-time and that those that are part-time should be thankful for it. Well the lady that interviewed me said the head nurse said if a good canidate came though wanting part-time to send the application to her and she'd review and decide whether to send it on to the board or not. Turns out the head nurse is my old nursing school director. But it was a matter that even though she approved it still had to go before the board and I had to turn in countless papers. Plus in order to get the highest amount of pay I had to prove my skills by writing out how I would handle certain medical cases if I were presented them. Well I got the top pay....YIPPEE!! I'll be making between $3.95 to $4.95 more an hour, not to mention the retirement benefits.
I cannot tell you how excited I am that I can leave my present job.......its so bad there. I'm going to work my next scheduled weekend and then turn in my resignation........boy is that going to be another celebration. I'll miss a lot of my fellow co-workers and so many of my patients though...thats the downfall. But "I GOT THE JOB"!!!! Ok...I'm a bit excited

Thanks everyone....I'm highly excited. DH walked in the door last night and I was literally jumping up and down beaming from ear to ear. Could be a combination of that and this beautiful weather we're finally having. Have an amazing day everyone!
