Hi all - need some opinions out there among my fellow nurses in the trench. I recently changed my job status from a full time to per diem position. The regional director (dialysis), initially told me that all I had to do was submit the request in writing, and she would be happy for me to go per diem. The clinic was sufficiently staffed at the time of my decision. One day later, she called me at home and told me that I would have to give a 2 week notice to go per diem or she would put me down as a no rehire. I questioned her at that time and she told me it was company policy. The reason for my going to a per diem position in the first place was because my DON is extremely abusive and intimidating and I felt I could no longer work under those conditions. I called our main office and was informed by human resources that the implementation of a 2 week notice was at the "discretion" of my DON. It was not policy! So, to make a long story short, I ended up quitting without notice. I feel bad about it because I truly liked the dialysis field - but could not work in that particular clinic any longer. Would appreciate your thoughts on this - and have any of you experienced similar situations?????Thanks.
