Like Three Years of Pregnancy

In October 2006, our hospital's nursing organization decided to seek designation as a Magnet Hospital from the American Nurse Credentialing Center. I volunteered to write the document that would provide the ANCC with evidence that we are in fact Magnet. Fortunately, Pennie (our VP of Nursing) decided that writing 1200+ pages - with attachments, mind you - was a job for more than one woman. Below you see me, Pennie, and Tanya (the other victim - uh, I mean writer), holding the four jump drives that carried our document - all 225 MB of it - off to the four appraisers last week.

The Proud Parents

Here are the beautiful flowers that appeared on my doorstep the next day with a thank you note from Pennie.

And now we wait to hear if the appraisers like our baby well enough to come visit.


Joan said...

Congratulations! It's a cute little baby for all that hard work. We are very proud of you.

Katharine said...

She's ba-ack! and writing for fun again, Yeah! Now we'll be hearing more from Charleston.

Pat said...

Thanks, Joan!! I still think they'll come to see your SCRUBS program, if nothing else.

And thanks, Kath, for keeping the blog going in my "absence". I'll do my best to keep up my end going forward!

What a tremendous accomplishment! They're going to love it! (Just a guess.)

Pat said...

Thanks, Vic! Keep your fingers crossed for me, ok?
