Patience my Child

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

With a "Get Her Done" attitude, which seems to involve everything but taking care of my own health and well-being, I don't like waiting around for things to happen, for decisions to be made, or for results to improve. I think Mother should have had my middle name be Impatience.

About a month ago, I was dismissed from my job at the city hospital during my probationary period. I was actually releived for that to have happened, as I felt I was compromising patient care and being expected to do too much with too little resources. So it goes when funding is short at any facility.

Since then I have only been able to secure a couple job interviews. One was with my ideal employer, in an specialty area that isn't necessarily what I would like. I was told that I would have a decsion on this position 2 weeks ago, but was told it would still be another week. The other position I applied for would give me my much needed autonomy, but be with a corporate organization, whose focus is usually more on making as much money as possible vs taking care of the pt. Found out yesterday that I was no longer being considered for that positon. Which I think I am greatful for, as they did not seem to have health coverage that would be adequate for my needs. So I am waiting on a job in which I have very little likelihood of landing along with the need to keep putting out more job applications.

I still do some insurance assessment jobs, but have not had any new ones come to me in the last couple of weeks. My bank account is getting hungry and they bills for the end of the month are arriving. I hope that good news comes soon, but HURRY UP!

    I understand completely what you are going through. And you post hit the situation in health care right on the head. I know what you mean about having to do too much with too little resources. And you are damed if you do and damed if you don't. You are a wonderful and caring person, unfortunately that doesn't count for anything in nursing anymore. Now it is are you young, slim, and attractive.And make sure you never get sick or need a mental health day. My very best of wishes and hopes for you and your job situation. I will keep plugging away day by day if you will. Best. Keith

    Thanks for continuing to cheer me on. This has been a long 4 years with little work stability, which ends up being reflected in my eating & financial patterns.
