Well, was doing my first shift of orientation today, and I got a call to the managers office. I had originally decided nights because I didn't plan on getting into the RN to BSN program where I got my ADN from, but I did. (I have to pass the NCLEX first time or I'm out)
She decided that she would give me the FT weekend day shift position! Basically, I work every weekend day and once during the week. I get time and a half the weekend days, so basically, get paid for 4 days, and only work 3. I think this is pretty much perfect because by the time I finish nursing school
I'd be done with this commitment. She normally doesn't put new grads on it, but because it would be a such a good fit with my schedule, I told her I don't see any problems with this. I can only have 3 weekends off this next year, and all of the holidays that fall within the weekend I work. Im not on an A or B schedule. I like this too because I'm usually bad at keeping up with a schedule, so I KNOW i'll work every weekend, and my one day a week would probably end up being set due to school.
Any thoughts? It's a surgical floor, btw. And all of the people I've talked too so far on orientation I like, they said the weekend crew is pretty tight knit and they work together really well.
