I recently got out of school and started a new job at a retirement community (long term care). The third shift nurse quit about a week ago, and the DON asked me to work third for three weeks until they hired someone else. The thing is that I work tuesdays and thursday evenings 3-11 and I am totally satisfied with that. But, I told the DON that I would work the third for a week or so because I have three kids to see that they get to school and husband gets to work on time also. Well, I worked one day on third, and decided it wasn't for me! Hated it, plus it interferred with my personal life and schedule at home. Now I feel bad that she doesn't have anybody to cover the shift. And I feel like she will hold a grudge against me for not working after I said I would. The day after I told her I couldn't work it, I went to work and she didn't hardly speak to me. How would you feel about that?? What would you do if you were in my shoes??
