I have put this post off, because I didn’t necessarily know where to start…
This was a HUGE decision I weighed heavily, involved so many prayers, most ending with question marks.
Early this summer I head about an awesome, unique career opportunity ….It is entirely different!!! The kind that deviates your path from all of what you previously expected. The more I stalked their website and asked around about them, the more I was intrigued and interested in this company. As one would expect from this post title I clearly interviewed,
chewed my nails off waited, and prayed for guidance. In the end I was presented with an excellent opportunity and graciously accepted the position.
Which meant I had to leave what I have come to feel comfortable with, eek … Leave all the women that have become a second family. Leave the place that became my work “home”. I have developed soooo much personally, professionally, and faithfully while being a part of this team. Not to mention, leave a path I have invested so much time and money into. Somehow in all of those fears I found peace with my decision, and that is when I knew I made the right decision, I concluded it must be a God thing.
So, what is this fantastic opportunity you ask?
I am going to join a EMR (electronic medical record) company as part of their implementation team. Enter jaw dropping response here
So you aren’t going to be a Nurse anymore?……(the first questions nearly everyone asks!)
Yes, I will always be a nurse, I am a nurse at heart. It is a field I am so passionate about, but I will be doing it from a different perspective. This is actually considered a nursing specialty known as, nursing informatics. Instead of providing hands on care and education directly to a patient, I will be providing education and encouragement to the clinicians, assisting in configuring software for each specific clinic, and at times share my perspective as a Nurse. It is for a company I have literally heard nothing but good news about. They have become known in our community as having a awesome, unique working environment, with TONS of opportunity for growth. So there you have it, my big life changing adventure! I start Monday, and I am very excited!
Did I mention I can wear open toed shoes, Good bye OSHA regulations ;)
