I have been offered a position in the ER of a small and lovely Hospital. The position is part-time, two nights a week. It's like my dream job. Fits perfectly with my schedule. I have another job, which I like and have a nice boss whom I highly respect.
Here is the situation;
I was offered the job to start orientation in a month. Orientation is full-time and in the morning. I still can do that, but three/four weeks after the proposed start day. I have previously acquired commitments with my previous job, which I cannot and do not want to avoid.
I will ask the nurse manager about the possibility of delaying the start day for a month, to honor my commitments and to serve this new job 100 %. In the meantime, I can even volunteer to get acquainted with the Unit, paperwork, and personnel. I do not care about paying, I just want them to hire me a a bit later.
How can I approach the nurse director? Isn't it too dangerous to ask to be hired a month later? I do not want to disservice anybody here. Any advice will be greatly appreciated!
