I can finally share my exciting news!
(NO, it's NOT about BABIES YET...)

I have officially accepted a position as a Clinical Instructor (C.I.) for the
Duke School of Nursing in the spring semester!!!
This is the "opportunity" that I mentioned a few weeks ago.

If you recall, I had applied for this position last fall and again last spring and both times never heard anything after submitting my application.
Needless to say, I gave up!
A few weeks ago, I was in the breakroom at work doing some work on policies and procedures and in walks a friend of mine (Penni) who's a C.I. for the school and her boss (Kathy).
Penni introduced me to Kathy who on the spot offerred me a job for the spring.
I let her know that we were moving and I could only fulfill the role for 1 semester.
I think I was in shock for the next few days...

This spring is going to be so busy for us with Chris & I both preparing to graduate and move to Nashville.
I had so many doubts and insecurities about taking on another thing.
Chris & I talked about it,
Chris encouraged me,
I prayed about it,
all the while knowing God had this in store for me all along.

This opportunity will only be possible because I have the most wonderfully supportive boss in the world.
She is willing to let me drop my status to 2 days/week so I can continue working for her while taking on my new role!
There aren't many bosses like her...thanks Joey!

I sent Kathy my resume soon after and that set the ball rolling...
I got the official offer earlier this week,
accepted it,
sent in my payroll papers today,
and will officially sign my name on the dotted line next week!

What a crazy semester it's going to be...
Mondays- 10 hours of preceptorship for my final class
Tuesdays- C.I. duties or preceptorship
Wednesdays- C.I. duties
Thursdays- work
Friday- work
weekend- try to relax, catch-up on things

I'm so excited about my new position and the opportunity to try something new!
