WOW I needed that laugh!!! Thank you!
Yes, I look at job boards like q1h, hoping that something will call out to me and save me from my current Lucy & Ethel fiasco (which is spot-ON
btw!). But in all seriousness, I'm one of those people that is too scared at this point to give up all the accrued vaca time, etc., and chance it on something that may likely turn out to be the same, or e-GADS even worse. At least I know my poison now, and all the poisonous people I need to avoid or figure work-arounds for. If I start over somewhere else, it's likely to not be greener, and then I'm back down to beginner vacation, worst on-call shifts, etc. (their ads probably won't say "We are awful and will treat you crappy, so come join our team!"). I actually think of this often as I cruise the AN posts of soooo many nurses who are looking to leave their current job - some after only a month and some after decades. As I read one post of someone saying "I finally got outta there!
" and the next post says "I got hired!!!!
", I wonder if poster #2 just took poster #1's job and she'll be "outta there" in 1 month too?
Emergent, you hit the nail on the head with this video, but unless and until we (as a workforce) start CHANGING
our working conditions instead of just leaving it for some other new poor sap to occupy, aren't we all just playing musical chairs?? I don't want a new job, I want this industry to wake UP and stop the madness!
