Warning: You’re about to be bombarded with exclamation points!

Something so exciting has happened to me that the only way I can possibly post about it involves an excessive use of the aforementioned punctuation. However, I think it’s worth it. That’s because, as I casually mentioned in my previous blog…

…I recently got my dream job as a certified nursing assistant (CNA) at Children’s Memorial Hospital!

I'm officially a member of the workforce!

The position is everything I could ever want (At least until I pass the NCLEX and become an actual RN at Children’s Memorial Hospital!), so I was pretty pumped when I first found out that I got it. But after a week of orientation, I’m even more excited that I thought was possible!

As I child, I was treated at CMH, so I already knew that it is a great place to go if you need medical care. Little did I know that it is also a great place to work!

All of the staff seems extremely excited for me to be working there, and the hospital offers a ton of support and perks for its employees. I feel so valued there…and I don’t even have my first official shift until Monday!

I’m sure I’ll be posting about how this affects my (lack of) sleep, study time, and life plans, but if you have any questions in the meantime about how I got the position, what duties I have, or anything else, feel free to ask me!

And thanks for putting up with my overused punctuation!!!!!

  1. Deciding to be a LPN is probably the best things I’ve ever done for myself.
