We are all so overworked because there is never enough staff, and that's not the life I want anymore. I'm very glad I came, but I can't see working a Northern post ever again. It's just not for me, for various reasons.

Or I can stay here and go insane, which is not a very good choice. Quality of life also needs to be a factor, not just money.
The not replacing sick calls is a common ploy. When I was working my final practicum, many of the hospitals weren't replacing sick calls or short LOA's. This was 3 years ago.

SSDD with the PCs, isn't it?

But of course, they will all say and do whatever they need to become elected. At the end of it all, this truly is SSDD. Everywhere is the same. Money is all that matters.
