This morning when I came in to work my charge nurse teased me saying he had put a pink slip in my mail box….
He is a natural kidder, so I knew that there wasn't a pink slip in there. All the same, because I am the way I am, I had to at least look, right???
I found 2 envelopes in there…one a note from the charge saying that the other charge RN had been "singing my praises" etc…. The other a note from the Manager of the department saying how pleased she was with my work and that I was a "good fit" (which is a key word in the industry…). In both envelopes were coupons; one for the cafeteria and one for Panera Bread….
Initially I thought this was what they did for everyone. But then the other traveler I was working with noticed the envelopes and charged off to her mailbox to look for her goods. Nothing in hers. ooops. I feel pretty happy to be recognized. One thing that was really nice is that the manager makes handmade cards, and the card she gave me was very very pretty which made it a bit more special…
So, all's well.
Still trying to decide what to do next. Spoke for 15 minutes with H. tonight and was reinvited to come out to Santa Fe, but was also suggested strongly that if I was doing well with training, I should probably stay put in Florida.
I have to register for The Other Half in May, and its at altitude, so I need to make some choices soon. I could do a different half, but Moab is fun, and Santa Fe could be really fun in the right situation….
