All Business Here...

Last week I started my new job as a PCT...patient care tech.  The first week was training at corporate.  All the new hires for all the hospitals in the ownership group were there...from HR to billing to nurses to hospital registration.  So, it was very fascinating to learn about all different aspects of the hospitals, not just nursing.  It is amazing how little profit the hospital actually makes.  The rest of the week was filled with emergency procedure training...schooling on the new vital machines...learning the extremely confusing computer charting system.  8 hours of training per day requires multiple cups of coffee...business casual attire required...





 This is one of my favorite summer blazers...a Target special!  I kind of consider it good luck...I wore it on my first ever nursing info seminar, so I had to wear it on my first day of work.  The style the blazer for fall, I paired it with a darker color and ankle boots.  I love how the maroon color grounded the bright pattern of the blazer. 


Since it was cool and rainy on day 2, I decided it was time to break out the boots and tights.  I knew it would be one of the last few times that I would have a reason to wear dresses or skirts, so I styled up my favorite dress from last winter...love the silver spread woven in the knit.  I almost forgot how much I love wearing skirts and dresses every day...I will definitely miss it while I spend my day in scrubs...

Tomorrow is the big day...my first day donning scrubs  with a 12 hour shift on the med/surg floor.  Of course, I will be shadowing another PCT for a few shifts...you didn't think they were going to let he round on patients by myself right off the bat...did you...??
