It is but a very quick passing of time. I was offered the job just three weeks after I applied for it and so I am very happy and thankful. I worked so hard for this and I prayed even harder for this so God really knew how much I really want this job. Thank God He blessed me with it! I need the money and the experience but most of all, I need the scholarship that I will be getting through this job.

I started with the one-week-orientation last week for the Patient Care Technician position at Harris Methodist Hospital in Cleburne. I am now a part of one of the largest companies in Texas working from the smallest Nursing role for a start. I am very proud to be able to get into one of Fortune’s 100 Best companies to work for 2015. I hope and pray that I will be able to meet the Medical-Surgical Unit’s expectation of me. This will better prepare me for all the clinicals I will be doing as I continue to work on getting my RN degree.

That being said, yes, I don’t stop taking classes. In fact, I just finished my summer class for Pathophysiology and I am enrolled already for two classes in the Fall. I don’t know how I will ace what I entered into but I trust that God will lead me as He always has in the past.
