Secret

So I have been keeping a pretty big secret. (NO, NOT PREGGERS) There is a new helicopter program being started not far from my house. I applied last week and heard back on Monday, interviewed yesterday. The interview went GREAT! I told the cop afterwards that I kicked the crap outta that interview.
Soo..... I got a phone call this morning and was offered the position as a flight nurse!!!!!
WHOO-HOOOOO!!!!
I know that it hasn't sunk in yet. I still can't even think of what to say other than thank you. The base manager told me that I gave an incredible interview and that I was exactly what they were looking for. So... I leave for critical care academy in Phoenix in 3 weeks! I emailed my nurse manager and let her know what was going on. I expected to have her all pissed off, but she was very nice and offered to let me stay hourly. I might.. will have to think about it. Am going to stay in the ER though!

Wow -fantastic news for you!!! I came across your blog a few months ago, its so good I sat down and read the whole thing at once! I came across it as I was about to start a course in nursing and doing some research - your blog helped me sustain the thoughts that I was (am) doing the right thing!
Great news - keep posting - so interested to hear how it goes for you...
Am about to leave the classroom and start my first placement (fingers crossed!)
