This theme is most apporopriate because today is actually Paige’s Birthday!
Happy Birthday Lady!!!
(I know another nurse/blogger lady who’s birthday is coming soon… Happy Birthday to Renee on March 2nd!)
I won’t be celebrating my birthday until June but I can tell you what I did last year…
I turned 24.
I’m pretty sure the hospital sent me a birthday card.
I was at the hospital on my birthday, but it was only for 2 different meetings for nursing committees I’m apart of. (I even instagrammed about it!)
Then I went home and spent the evening with husband (and the sweet, sweet man bought me a camera)!
Not a bad day.
Where I work at, nurses are able to pick their own schedule. There’s always the chance that the schedule coordinator might move you around if they need to, but for the most part, you get what you want. That means birthdays/anniversaries/any special occasions can usually be worked around. The major holidays (christmas eve, christmas, new years eve, new years, thanksgiving, 4th of July) are a different story. We keep track of who works what and we are required to sign up for a certain amount of holiday hours…
overall though, the schedule is wonderful and I LOVE only working three 12 hour shifts a week.
