I am a relatively new nurse (year 2) working in LTC... my workplace has lost 3 nurses in the past month and my boss expects the remaining us of to pick up all the shifts! There is 3 FT nurses and 2 night nurses. It is just beginning to be too much.. working 6-7 days a week, getting stuck OT without notice and working alone.. the ratio is 95:1.. I'm burned out and when I confronted my boss, he said there was nothing he could do for us and he "was trying" to hire more help. Am I being a baby and should I stick it out or should I look elsewhere for a new job? Is anyone else having this problem.. I know there is a "shortage" but this is ridiculous.
