Get to it!!!

I don't know about you but if I have lots of time to do something I will take forever, slowly getting around to it. Of course, If I have a deadline, I'm right on it. I think I work better under pressure. I've got just one test left and all week to study for it and I just can't seem to focus!
I guess my mind is just pre-occupied about things. Things are financially kind of rough right now and I wish I could just speed up graduation and get out there working!
I was talking to a recruiter from the nearby hospital and he was saying how there aren't as many nurse tech positions available as their used to be. He was also saying that hospitals down in Portland are having hiring freezes right now. Really scary for new grads. Alot of nurses that used to work on call are working full time because of spouses loosing their jobs, and people are putting off their retirement. This makes it hard for new grads to find good positions. I am hoping and praying that things work out and I guess it doesn't help anything to sit and worry about it.

My motto (especially since I retired) is why do today what can be put off until tomorrow. That's why I've done very little around the house in the 2½ that I've been retired. Don't worry about a job now...remember God will supply that perfect job for you when the time comes. I wouldn't recommend Western State but besides the civilian hospitals, there also Madigan & the VA. Even St Anthony's in Gig Harbor wouldn't be a bad drive since you'd be going in the opposite direction going over there. I hope you sat on your front porch & soaked up the sunshine today. Love & hugs... your local Aunt Linda

Hey becky! Sorry I haven't visited your blog in so long...bad sister!

You are doing so great in school, and I am very confident that you'll have no problems getting hired once you're out - yes, God will provide!

Love ya! ~Jill

The open doors are less but they are there. Keep your eyes open. Good luck.

I put things off till the last minute too. Good luck on your exam.
I hope things look up with the economy so you can get the job you want. Even here there are not that many jobs open for nurses and if there is a job it is not flexible.
