I Want My Contract To End!!!

  1. I have been in this contract for 7 VERY LONG, STRESSFUL weeks! I wish they would tell me to go, just to get me OUT OF HERE!

    Staff are leaving in droves, the people left are SO SNOTTY! I hate going to work! They are always short, and I (lucky me!) seem to have earned the "dislike" of a couple of people (unfortunately, one of them is a charge nurse! ).

    This one particular b***h scrutinizes my work, is never around to help! 2 nights ago, I had one VERY BUSY pt; was tied up with him for over 6 hours. I went and checked on the other pt every hour, kept listening for alarms, but was unable to do a TID drsg change. I HAD to prioritize my noc, and my active GIB took a little precendence! than a TID drsg change on a MVA, day 40!!!! Well, I heard about not doing the drsg change tonight!! There are MANY other crappy things she does to me; she is the worst (ok, she is tied with another!). (Oh, and tonight, SHE went to go lay down, BECAUSE SHE STARTED GETTING A MIGRAINE!

    I try and be pleasant; not to just jump in her face! But I am so sick of this! I wish I could just bail on this assignment!

    Thanks for letting me vent! Has anyone ever wished they could just leave! No real "license threatening" issues, unless not enough time to do a good job is!

    {{{HUGS}}} To You! I know how it feels to be stuck in an assignment that sucks! I'm not sure what you can do, just wanted to offer my support. Too bad there's not anyone there you can relate to, sometimes it helps... Are you working a lot of shifts w/the B**** CN? Hope not. What, "only" 6 more wks to go??!! That's a snap! Hang in there!

    {{{{rncopper)}}}} Bad assignments, and nit picky people suck big time! I have been on more assignments, then I would care to comment on, that I dislke every min I was there!!! Hang in there, and you KNOW you will be glad you didn't let it get the best of you. And 6 weeks is an enternity when you some place like that, and you have to deal with folks like this! But I will say a prayer, that maybe you have less days working with these people that you thought. Take care and hang in there!

    RNCopper- you can come down to Ky and work with me. I work with a good bunch, and we don't treat our travelers that way.

    Philadelphia is paying me well and the coworkers are wonderful, though the patients ocassional kick our rears.

    Just bite the lip and get through it day by day by day - being happy that leaving is in sight

    How exciting! I did some agency nursing in a few different states, but I lived there then, even though it was only 6 months. Let us know how it goes! How fun!
