The thing about becoming a fully functional OR nurse is that the education cannot stop with me.
I cannot stop learning.
I cannot stop teaching.
Today, I cannot stop validating what other people know.
The corporation that I work for has mandatory annual validation of skills.
Every employee has to do online education every year.
Some of the skills must be validated.
Today I am running the Fire Safety and Prevention booth for OR/PACU/ENDO staff.
I am manning the table from 0700-1200.
Although I am a big proponent of being paid every time I work, I am volunteering today.
Because I will eventually be paid when I turn my clinical ladder in next year.
I can wait for the payoff.
I am patient.
