Approved! Anatomy & Physiology, here I come!

I got the good news today.

I am approved for 75% reimbursement for my continuing education instead of the regular 50%. :)

I have to take some specialty courses for my job. The courses will teach me how to do my job (correctly) and how to run the entire registry. Courses that are definitely needed as I have been teaching myself, plus they are required to be completed before I can be certified. And of course.....certification is a requirement to me keeping my job. Go figure.

In order for a person to qualify for the higher reimbursement their position must be considered hard to fill. Surprisingly my position was not listed. This is very interesting since there is only one of these positions in the entire hospital and it did take them over 2-years to fill it.

Oh and here is a tidbit of info for you....hospitals are required by law to have a registry. There is a deadline for when cases need to be completed. If these cases are not completed then the hospital will lose its license. Talk about being under pressure to learn as fast as I can.

I just hope I can finish 150 weeks of courses in 28 weeks. I guess I had better get started. Wish me luck!
