Our unit is going to set days for everyone to work. We have a weekend crew, night crew, and day crew so I have to figure out which 2-3 days a week I want to work Mon through Fri. I'm a little bummed because usually once a schedule I would get an 8 day break but no more. Also, it was really nice to just request certain days off that my kids were off or someone in my family was having a birthday, etc but now we will have to work the same set days each week. The only way this is nice is due to the fact we can know a year in advance which days we have off however it's never been a problem to get a requested day off. I'm also confused on how it will work for me being flex-time. Will I automatically get scheduled just 2 days a week or sometimes 3? They don't know yet. What do other places do? Is it better to work 3 in a row or split them up? Is it better to work 2 in a row or split them up? I'm really stressing because I've always loved the variety of sometimes working them together and sometimes splitting them up, sometimes 2 days and sometimes 3, sometimes a M and T and the next week something different, etc. and having to pick something I'm going to have to work for a year or more worries me because I'll be stuck if I don't like it. Some people have said like a T and Th which would be nice because if you had a really bad assignment you wouldn't have to face it two days in a row, however, it's easier to have the same patients two days in a row. I don't mind working two in a row but three in a row is hard. If I split the 3 up I'll have less days off in a row. Uggh! So just wondering what others suggest that work the same exact days every week think is best and if anyone knows how it works with flex-time. Thanks in advance!!
