I have an externship right now that I started in January at a children's hospital. I love it! And my charge nurse and preceptors are telling me that I am excelling and doing well.
Problem is I am pregnant and having a really difficult pregnancy. I have come to the difficult decision that I need to quit my externship and put my health as a priority. Between nursing school
full time, a toddler at home, and feeling incredibly sick every day I think that I need to cut back on anything that I can. I am going to stay in school and power through it, but working every weekend on top of that has become too difficult now.
I need advice on how to quit in the most professional way possible, to not burn any bridges. How to go about it etc. I am really hoping that they still consider me for a job when I graduate, but obviously I am choosing to sacrifice that job security for the sake of my health and sanity.
Any advice is welcome and appreciated. Thank you!
