So as many of you know via Twitter or just being my friends, I got the job I interviewed for a few weeks ago! YAY!
I will be floating between two hospitals and on four different floors assisting in surgical recovery and general practice! The job starts off as a 12 week paid internship and then will turn into a full or part time position once I pick the floor and hospital I want to work on and depending on the open positions at the time! Come fall I will choose part time since I am still in school but this summer its full time, bring on the 12 hour shifts!!! Can't wait!
So starting today and until June 3rd I will be working 8-5 for orientation at both hospitals and all four floors!
I do not get to wear my comfy scrubs for these three weeks so sassy pants that I am have to start planning out some business professional outfits! I am confident and a-okay with todays but you working women need to help me out!
I have a TON of dresses I can wear with blazers or cardigans but I don't know office etiquette! Last year I was allowed to work in jeans and scrubs soooo I've never really had to look presentable on a daily basis, and at 7am!
How short is too short for a dress?
How many inches should my hem hit above my knee?
Are wide leg black trousers appropriate? (they look like these!)
Is a hot pink blouse with ruffles too much?
SO many questions running through my mind!
Also- fellow nursing ladies, how do I survive a 12 hour shift? I like Diet Coke and coffee but I can only have so much or else I get crazy shakes and no one wants a shaky nurse! Also how do I sleep during the day if I work at night?
Ok so you get the point, I am flooding my mind with questions!
Any advice at all I would love to hear!
