I’ve only told my family so far and have been advised by my instructor to wait to tell my classmates until after this semester is over (2.5 weeks). My instructor said that because the CNA positions are highly sought after, my job news may bring feelings of resentment prior to finals week, and it would be best for moral to just wait it out. So upon my instructors advice I’m waiting to tell my classmate friends of my getting the job until after finals are over or next semester when I see them again in the fall.
Although I’m thrilled to get the job, the position is only causal which means I just have to pick up a total of 16 hours every two weeks, but could accept full time hours if I wanted and were available. My hubby and I have been making ends meet so far, but there is a pay cut we’ll have to budget around and I just hope that the census is high enough to replace the needed 20-24 hours a week that I am currently working. I’m praying that because I nearly effortlessly got the job to begin with, that God has me on his track for my life and money and hours will work themselves out.
For now, I’m thrilled and excited that Extraordinary found favor with me to be a wanted employee in the medical setting at their hospital. I’m thrilled that my prayers were answered for an easy interview with the department manager, especially in such a stressful time during my semester at school. I just hope that I can build a great reputation and get a job as a nurse at the end of my schooling.
Now I’m off to go look for scrubs to buy, humm where can I buy them online for cheaper than what I’d pay for them in the stores?
