Be Bold

So you know those times when you get enough courage to be bold and do something and it all works out? Yep, that happened yesterday. So I had to work the night shift yesterday and it was super slow. No admits. No Discharges. 10 patients. Super easy breezy. So I had all the time in the world to write my boss about my personal goal for the Pediatric Unit this year. Naturally, I was in one of my moods where I felt like I had nothing to lose.

So this is what I wrote:  
Goal: My personal goal for this year is to continue to grow professionally with Intermountain Healthcare (IHC). Seeing that I will be graduating in April in Nursing, I would like to continue employment with IHC as a registered nurse. It is my goal to obtain a nursing job by August 2012. Specifically, I would like to obtain a nursing job in the Pediatrics, NICU, or Labor and Delivery departments at UVRMC
Regarding my personal goal, I was wondering if you knew of or foresee a possible need for nurses at UVRMC Pediatrics between April and August? I would love to continue working in this department. I have loved being a part of the UVRMC Pediatric team and would love to be a part of this team as a registered nurse. I also have interest in working as a master float employee so that I could further my nursing skills in Pediatircs, NICU, and Mom/Baby.

Long story short: I was called by my manager yesterday to inform me that she was ecstatic that I wanted a job there and that she wanted me as an employee!!! I think I just learned a very important lesson. Being bold, you get what you want. If you don't, someone else will take it before you have a chance.
