I have been in touch with my nurse manager in neuro (even though I REALLY REALLY don't wanna go back there) and the manager in the ER. Both said they would hire me back. I also applied for an open flight nurse job at our competitor, but there are other out of work flight nurses doing the same, so we will see what happens.
I have never actually been laid off before. I got fired from a job at a hot dog place in college. You are apparently NOT supposed to tell the customers that everything was fried in LARD! (hehe) I've taken it pretty hard, obviously and it hasn't helped that I have to come up to the library to blog, research and try to figure out what to do next! I will try to continue to keep posting as things progress..... the ER has been kind enough to throw every shift they have at me, so while I won't be making what I did at least I'll have an income.
I have faith that I will get through this.... in the meantime I'll put on some Buffett, drink a little Marker's Mark and remember what a kick ass job I had!
