I recently left the hospital after many years for public health. I stayed on per diem for many various reasons, one of which being my husband's worry over the funding status of the public health job. My hospital requires very specific things for per diem slots, and I simply have not been able to keep up with the hours they require.
Several years ago, we got a new nurse manager. None of the nurses in our unit has a good relationship with the manager, but I have a particularly acrimonious relationship with her because I cannot keep my mouth shut and just go along to get along. If I had a better nurse manager, I would never have sought another job.
I decided to totally resign from the hospital, typed up a resignation letter, and went to see her. She was not there (not unusual) so I slid it under her door (typical method for getting her information). The next day I called and left her a message asking her to please let me know if she got it and to see if anything else was required of me. That was a week ago, and I have had no response. I know she's been there, she's just ignoring me. I called again two days ago and left another message for her, asking her to please just let me know that she just received it. Still, no reply, and I know she's been at work.
What do I do? Just call HR? She hates it when people call HR. My last encounter with her was because I called HR to clarify per diem policies and they let her know I called them. She called me and actually used the "how dare you" phrase because I "went over her head." I'm so afraid she's trying to find away to screw me and keep me from being eligible for rehire. I really don't ever want to work there again, but they own all the hospitals in a 3 county area, so I don't think it's wise to burn bridges.
