I got offered a promotion at work. The title is Med Tech. A Med Tech is a CNA who is allowed to give out medications to patients. (At least where I work). The only problem is they want me to work the middle of the night shift. Yuck. 

I took the position. I told my boss that I would give it a try. I am nervous about being able to stay awake on that shift, but it will only be two nights a week. I went through a whole pro and con list and the pros for taking it totally out weigh the cons. 

1. It will look really good to have this title when I apply for the nursing program in the fall. The program is extremely competitive and any job experience and promotions within will help, a lot.

2. I get a little raise. Money is always a nice incentive.

3. Most of the residents will be sleeping and it will provide some good study time. 

I also want to find out if the building has wireless. I would really like to bring my computer. It would help me stay awake. 

Wish me luck! 

Finals are next week and I have a TON of studying to do. I can't believe the semester is almost over. I am so excited. Now I am just praying that I pass my biology class. If I don't, I have to retake it. Which means I can't take anatomy in the summer and I won't be able to apply for the nursing program until the spring. 

Yeah, no stress there! (Definite sarcasm here)


  1. Congratulations on your promotion and I wish you all the luck in the world, but I don't think you'll need it. Things will work out fine.

  2. Best on your finals! And congrats on the promotion :) Graveyards can be good and bad.

  3. Congrats on the promotion!!!! Good luck on your finals. I am sure you will do great!!!! Miss You!!!

  4. You were smart to do a pro/con list, and even more so, you should be very proud of yourself. You'll do great : )

  5. Thanks you guys. I will let you know how finals go after I take them! ;)

  6. Awesome! Congrats on the promotion. Good luck with finals!

  7. Congratulations, T! I know you told me about this over the phone, but I forgot about it until I read this. Good luck!
