Slay Play and Rose: Life Update 2018

Hi friends!  I am so excited to share that I have a new amazing job!  If you watched my IG stories, you would know I was going through a bit of a mid-life crisis.  I recently left my OR nursing job and felt lost (career-wise) for a couple months.  I do love that as a nurse I make a difference and my patients feel as comfortable and cared for as possible.  While I do enjoy the operating room and all my surgeons and friends, I knew I was ready to experience new challenges.   Not knowing where I was going to end up, I felt I needed a change.  Now I don’t recommend it, but as a nurse you can literally quit your job and have another job the same day!  Which is what I did.  Instead of taking a full time job right away, I worked for a couple of nursing agencies in the Houston area to give myself some time.

While figuring out my career goals, I had a few job offers which I turned down….and I am grateful I did not accept these early offers.  I got an email through LinkedIn for a job as a Clinical Resource Manager.  I read the job description and thought my skills fit their needs perfectly.  After a couple intense interviews, I received the amazing news that they wanted me to join their team.  I am now a little over a week in and am learning so much every day.  I was fortunate enough to join the week of their annual meetings in Denver, so I was able to meet many of the leaders and hear more about the company.  I feel so lucky for this opportunity and am excited to grow with this company!

I am so glad I got into nursing after my business degree  Without it, I wouldn’t have been considered for a job like this.  You can do so much as a nurse, and I am a good example of that.  One of the best perks so far is that my wardrobe doesn’t consist of purely scrubs anymore.  This outfit is perfect for the fall/winter season!  What do you think?
