The New Job

I'm working as an intern chaplain in a local hospital this summer. It's part of my seminary curriculum, so there's a 6 credit class involved. I was assigned approximately 60 patients across 4 departments: Emergency (ED), Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), Pediatrics (Peds), and InterMediate Care Unit (IMCU). I make rounds from 8 - 5 when I'm not in class and I'm on call once a week and two weekends out of the summer. I get to do my first rounds tomorrow.

So far it's going great. There are four full time chaplains and three students, including myself. It's a great bunch of people to work with. I think I'll learn a lot.

This is the first job where I've worn a tie every day. I don't plan to do that when I'm working with churches. When I was running some errands tonight I got stopped by three or four people who wanted me to help them find something in the store. They were horribly embarrassed when I told them I didn't work there.

Does that mean that hospital chaplains dress like retail managers?
