I’m still waiting to hear whether I’m getting my job back at the hospital or perhaps when I might be getting it back.
Last Monday I had a meeting at the hospital in the Human Resources department. I knew that it would be with at least two people but to my surprise there were five people in the meeting! Ahhhh! I wasn’t prepared for that. I don’t think there were even that many people there for my two interview for the Emergency Department back in 2002. I think there were only three people for those interviews.
Since I’ve been off work on medical leave for 6 years the hospital wants to make sure that I’m ready to come back and they’re trying to decide where to place me. I’ll also have to learn the new computer programs for charting my nursing notes and so on.
So … I’m waiting and waiting and waiting. Between going to my doctors and telling them that I wanted to go back to work and then having meetings with Occupational Health at my workplace and then HR I’ve been working on getting back to work since January! I’m antsy to get back to work. If it takes my longer I’m going to start think about looking into a Walmart or walgreens employment application form just so I can get out and get working. It would be a waste of my Nursing education, but I’m tired of being at home.
