I got it today! My ATT is here.
I take my board exam on October 8, 2007. Some two weeks after that I will no longer be license pending.
My employer is even more excited about this than me.
I mentioned before that I work as a dialysis technician. Most dialysis patients begin their life on dialysis with a central venous catheter. Eventually they'll have surgery to put another kind of access in their arm, either a graft or a fistula. Some never have the surgery and have their catheters forever.
Lately our clinic has gotten a lot of new patients.....so that means lots, oodles, tons, an embarrassment of catheters. On the days when we have catheter patients the 2 or 3 nurses we have in the clinic run themselves ragged hooking up all the catheter patients while we techs stand helplessly nearby and wait. Once I have my license I can join in the fun, and help out with the catheter patients.
For now the cake ban has been suspended.
