there's a position that has been posted, on the unit i work per diem on. it's a full time postion, 8 hrs (it's a cns/educator type position). many have said they are not interested in the position because it is 8 hrs/5 days (the staff works 12 hrs). the only problem is, it is impossible for me to work ft. it's not the 8hrs, it's the 5 days a week that i cannot do. would it be too presumtuous of me to ask if they would consider a pt position (3 days a week)? i don't want to formally apply before finding out if they would consider it. honestly, i don't think it will be too easy to fill the position, because of the 8 hr thing (and it's nights too
). i don't want to be the one to tell them that, but they'll soon realize when few people apply. it seems that there are few who are qualified (i would say i am), or interested. i just don't want to be too pushy. i thought maybe a quick phone call would do it, before i started stressing over it. but i don't want to tell them what they should do. any thoughts???
