  2. Calling in sick
    We are a small rural hospital. No floaters, etc. Went back today and amazingly enough, the world had kept turning. Coworkers ask if I was feeling better and that was it! (one small jab from...

  5. Calling in sick
    I never call in. But I've had to this week and I feel guilty when I shouldn't. Came down with some viral something last weekend and just can't seem to get over it. Didn't see doctor because...

    Your enthusiasm is fantastic! Thanks for that : ) One of the aspects of the interview that I am excited about is that it includes meeting with the NICU education person. The learning curve is...

  11. Charting disruptive patient behaviors: Are you objective?
    Very informative. I work med-surg but here lately we have had more and more patient's that I would loved to have charted as a "Royal PIA!" Rude, demanding, threatening, um, no.

  14. How do I answer "Why did you leave your last job?"
    Won't even be asked. If you went back to nursing school it is obvious that you would be leaving your fast food job : ) If it is, go with your husband's answer or simply say you left to give...

  15. Not feeling the love.
    As I said, my question was simply that, if this was her plan, why she did not make my resignation effective immediately so that I could move on. Would have been better for both her and myself. That...

  21. Someone with insight into bonuses
    It does not address in any way not being able to work full-time due to call-offs. Only if I choose not to work full time. Which was not the case. This has been an on-going situation for the past...
