I have been pretty hush hush about this but I interviewed for a labor and delivery position over at Sharp Mary Birch last week and I got it!!!! I’m so excited. I have my dream job.
It’s all been so fast. I applied for this job about 2 weeks ago when the recruiter for my current hospital called me and said that there would be October preceptorships at Mary Birch starting in October. For those of you who are not nurses, when you apply for a new specialty or are a new grad, you go thru a training period that’s called preceptorship. You go to classes and get matched up with a “preceptor” who is responsible for teaching you the ins and outs of the job. These preceptorships are usually only offered 2 times a year in January and July but they decided to do an extra one this year.
I interviewed last week and I got the impression that they liked me but they told me that they would start letting applicants know in about 3 weeks. My heart sunk because I so wanted to get to nursing moms and babies. But they got to me 2 weeks early. When the manager called me she said “You are such a gem. We couldn’t pass you up.” Makes me feel good because she did say that my current manager gave me a glowing review. It’s nice to be appreciated for your hard work.
The job starts on Oct 29. I’m sooo excited.
