Still getting cancelled. And recently an agency told me I was confirmed--I was excited got dress and as soon as I stepped in my car they called to cancelled me.
I feel like I am having panic attacks and want to vomit when I tell them my availability because it is so unrealiable. I don't tell them my avaliability anymore.
They make it seem like the census is up enough that you are needed. then they have the audacity to call me at all hours of the night and morning wanting me just to jump up put on scrubs
and go....I don't operate like that.
Maybe I an not flexible enough but this is really getting to me.
I can't budget accordingly and then we play phone tag so I can find if I am confirmed or not. I am looking for a prn job in my city in the mean time, but I do not want to live in this city anymore. I just want to scream.
I feel like I have enough experience and have my BSN and want to pursue my MPH or MSN and shouldn't be going through this. I have a very very easy part time job but its not cutting it financially. I just don't know what to do---I never thought I would be in a situation like this.....Everytime I see the agency on my phone I want to throw the phone to the wall and I feel like its a joke. And please don't get me started on Travel nursing--similar experience. I am licensed in 3 different states and can't find a position that I want. I have no negative marks against me and I have good recommendations....I never thought I would be going through this.....
I am a disgruntled nurse right now...I have been praying for guidance and crying. I made more when I graduated when i was at a very good facility in Tampa but don't want to return there because it is a very emotionally taxing environment. They pay extremely well but it is quite emotional. Any suggestions would help or any cheering up would really help me at this point...thank you fellow nurses
