Hello Fellow RNs,
I am in need of advice. I have been working now for almost a year on unit that is very far from home (5 hours a day in commuting). I know a lot of nurses love the night shift; however, it does not fit in my schedule with my daughter. She is slipping in school and I feel it is due to the lack of supervision. I don't even get to see her when I have work because I leave before she comes home from school. I don't know what to do. I have applied everywhere! I received only one call from an interview and I feel it went very well but the HR rep said they're not done with interviewing and haven't made a final decision as of yet. The shift change is also taking a toll on my health. I have never been this sick before. My MD even told me I have to leave but how? The unit I work on does not have any day openings even though it would be horrible working days there because my nm is rude and mean to the RNs. Any advice on what I should do? I'm even considering moving out of state at this point because I'm beyond stressed out. Thanks in advance!
