I know you from Delphi as TravelREGNRS...
Listen, you hang in there. This is my point long ago where we are all looked at as fill ins and not as fellow co-workers.
I feel that we need to let others know if we are being mistreated by naming those hospitals that are are doing this to us.
To feel that you have to run out of assignment just burns me up! I would think you have signed a 13 week assignment and still have about 7 weeks to go.
I can't do much but I can say I am sorry you are having such a bad time right now.
I am complaining about lowered salaries but still love the idea of traveling. The fun leaves when you are miserable working where you feel like the agency Nurse that these other Nurses think they can criticize and take you down.
What I would do is openly speak to the nurse Manager after speaking to your Recruiter, first. You are a victim of abuse at work. You don't have to take this from anyone. I know that I wouldn't ever. You have the right to have a conference with the Nurse Manager and complain. You are a professional with a license and with experience. No one should feel they have the right to discipline you and make you feel that you are not doing the right thing. You know and so do I that Nursing is a 24 hr. job and no one ever died not having a stupid dressing not be changed!
- 0Dec 7, '03 by passing thruJust curious why you're not looking for a southern assignment in the winter...So. Cal., South Texas, Arizona, Florida, New Orleans, they are begging for travelers with all the "Snow Birds" who are down south for the next four months.
You could be in the sunshine, 80 degree weather, palm trees, oranges drooping off the other trees, tropical birds, gulf cruises, exploring Mexico.....?
- 0Dec 7, '03 by rncopperLived in AZ for 30 years; born in CA; done the western part of the US (traveling as a kid on vacations, etc). FL pays WAY to little. NEVER been to the Northeast and now that I am here, I LOVE IT!!!! I travel to see the country.
Just finished digging my car out from underneath the snow, so that I can go to work in about an hour!!
I actually "live" in SD (I own a house there; been there since 2000) and was getting a little homesick with no snow. But this "little" Nor'Easter made my day!!!!
(Actually, flying to FL on Wed for an ACLS class and to meet my recruiter - whom I have never met in over 2 1/2 years. Will be there 6 days; that will be enough!)
