Hello all, just wanted to get some opinions on this. We all know what it's like working holidays, etc..so I thought fellow nurses would be good people to ask.
I have been a nurse for 6 years. I am expecting a job offer with a health system I am not currently a part of but a)I have several hundred dollar hockey tickets for a Saturday and in March and b) also I have a paid vacation planned for 7 days in September (Sunday to Sunday). At the job I think I might get an offer for (fingers crossed) I would work two 8s and two 12s and every other weekend. If HR calls me with an offer, is it reasonable to inform them I would need these dates off? Is that typical with starting a new job? I'm not a new grad (back then I would have cancelled a vacation just to get my foot in the door), so I've never been in this situation before. I should have enough paid time off accrued by cover these dates, but is it rude to go in already mentioning days off you need?
thanks for any insight!
