A Big Step

Well, I was officially hired as an LPN at the facility I worked at as a CNA. The hourly amount was $22 an hour plus shift differential, which means I'll be making $24.50.

Needless to say, this is a pretty big improvement over what the telecommunications company was paying me; I was left with little choice but to resign today.

I've been here for nine years. It's taken me nearly three years to complete the first part of my nursing education. It's still hard to leave my co-workers, who in time, became really good friends. There are, however, things I won't miss by changing careers:
  1. No dress clothes!
  2. No commissions!
  3. No quotas!

These are three big things I won't miss! It's still a very scary step for me, and was really hard to muster up enough backbone to actually send that resigaation letter.
