New Job

Guess who is the newest member of the ER team?

I told them I love my job I already have, and don’t really want a second job, but that I need extra (non-billing) hours for my medical bills and to get on staff for my chaplaincy training later. I was just up front and honest about it, and they think I am a perfect fit for their weekend on call shifts that no one else wants (because it is weekends, and because weekends are crazy)! I will take it!

I will be mostly working the ER, CCU, and some in the tower as needed, doing emergency assessments and admits/referrals.

Naturally, I told them all about Daybreak when he said they have trouble finding good mental health care for kids.

And-and-and, this will get me familiar with the hospital and staff for when I do my chaplaincy hours later, for which I have my VA phone interview later today and my stake president interview tonight.

It is so exciting!

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper. This is not an official Web site of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
