I am a recent BSN new grad and have only worked for 8 months. I am considering pursing my master's this coming spring. I am weary about asking my manager for a recommendation letter. I fear he will regret hiring me because I want to further my education and that I will eventually leave. I feel that I may be treated differently from management as well my co-workers. I currently work 36 hours and plan to decrease my hours to at least 24 hours once I start the program. Regardless I have to tell my manager I am in the program because he will want to know why I need to decrease my hours and have a set schedule. Or should I even tell anyone at work. I would appreciate any advice you have.
