New job update

April 20th, 2016 at 05:24 am

It's been a couple of months since I posted but things are still rolling along with me starting to work for the urgent care center. It's a long process but I'm nearing the end and will be able to start working in mid May.

First, I had mentioned the $525 fee I had to pay to apply for the medical staff. It turns out that I didn't have to pay that and they refunded my money. That was a nice surprise.

I did my Basic Life Support course last week. I have my employee physical scheduled for May 5.

I have my computer training on April 27 and 28. That's kind of a pain since I need to take off from work to do it. The upside is that I do get paid for it. So instead of working 12.5 hours in my current job at $70/hr I'll be doing 14 hours of training at $120/hr, a difference of $805. Not too shabby.

I also have to do a 1-day orientation on May 23. So again, I need to cancel my regular office hours, but I'll earn an extra $365 that day.

The doctor in charge is out of town at the moment but as soon as he gets back, I'm going to arrange a time to go in and shadow/observe to start to get a feel for the work flow and just generally how the place operates. Then I'll start scheduling shifts to work. I expected to actually start working by sometime in the 2nd half of May.
