    Default New Job Update

    I started my new job like two weeks ago and I am in love with it. At first I thought that I was going to be freaked out by it because the program consists of severely mentally retarded and physically disabled people. Some of them are deformed, and most are in wheelchairs. And it involves direct care...or more specifically changing diapers, hooking up/disconnecting G-tubes, etc. I was so intimidated by all of this. But as soon as I started and got into it, it just grew on me. I really love the clients and i've already bonded with a few. This experience makes me look even more forward to becoming a nurse in the future. Though I think I will most likely work with children because i love kids.

    And besides loving the job itself, the hours are perfect since they are from 8:30 am - 3 pm with no weekends ever.

    Lastly, i just applied to a staffing agency that sends out Subs to different group homes, but with higher functioning individuals. It looks like they want to hire me because the interview went great. They just need to check references, etc. But I'm really excited about it because I will get hands on experience with clients who have all different types of illnesses.

    Just wanted to share...

    thanks everyone. i'm really enjoying it. also, it's taught me a lot about my own health. after working with people who have severe disabilities, i've become more appreciative of who i am and what i have. and of course, i've become more compassionate towards them...

    Yeah!!! Will you do this other job that you just had the interview for in addition to your new job, or are you considering changing jobs again?

    In either case you are in a great field!!
