Irish, the exact same thing happened to me too.
I miss my residents and had bonded with them.
Good luck going back to work. I know you are an excellent professional and will find a better place to work. Where I use to work something like that happened and it seemed set up to me when it happened because they were doing away with agency nurses now due to the economy. They informed us nurses we had to work overtime if needed, to fill in. I heard the DON say myself that agency nurses were tooo expensive and they were done using them. Then, recently, when census fell tremendously and not replaced a few nurses - in house went as well. Yes, me being one of them. Since I have been gone 2 wks two more residents have passed. You will find something so much better and consider this a growing experience ! You will have learned from this and we move on... I sure hope we find jobs! LOL
Good luck to you Irish !
