First day at new job! Ahhh!

May 26th, 2016 at 05:51 am

I will be officially starting and the new Urgent Care center job tonight. I'm working 5-9pm. I'm both excited and nervous which I suppose is pretty normal.

I had my orientation on Monday. That was pretty interesting but wasn't specific to my position. It was just general stuff about the hospital system, being a good employee, human resources info, etc.

I did shadow the medical director for 2 evenings last week to start to learn the workflow. That helped me at least feel like I have some clue what to expect when I walk in the door tonight.

I'm hoping it all goes well and I feel comfortable working in that environment because the opportunity is a great one. I'll report back tomorrow if I remember.

Update and some parental bragging

For those following along on my new job, my first shift at the urgent care center is scheduled for May 26 in the evening (5-9pm). I'm going in 2 days this week to shadow the director while he's working so I can start learning the flow of the place.

My orientation for the hospital system is May 23. I'm sure that the vast majority of what they cover won't apply to me since I won't be working in the hospital but I'm required to attend and they pay me for it.

I've got 2 more training days for the occupational medicine department at the end of June.

On to the bragging part. My daughter is not the type who is comfortable with us talking about her accomplishments so I can't share things like this on facebook but I wanted to tell someone Smile. She finished her 2nd year of college with her best performance so far. For the spring semester, she had all A's or A minuses giving her a 3.88 GPA. That raised her cumulative GPA to a 3.398 I think. Last semester we were kind of nervous because she needs a 3.2 to keep her scholarship and a 3.3 to stay in the honors program and she was in danger of missing those marks but she pulled it together this semester and firmed up her position. That puts her on Dean's List for the semester, too, which is always a nice thing to have on your resume.
