No, they did not. I would do the exact same thing again, with zero qualms.

It was not unethical in any way.

This is an "at-will" state. I can be let go from a job at any time without a reason, or the reason could be trumped up.

I am also free to leave any job at any time without giving a reason.

Without employment in that interim, I would have lost my house.

I took a part time job in the evening in a nursing home. There was large and frequent staff turnover.

I did not deprive another person of a career they could have had.

Unlikely it will ever be necessary, but I would absolutely do it again if the need arose.

What about explaining why I can only work certain days of the week and not other?

Yes, I agree. As an RN apply for any part-time or especially per diem job that you are qualified for. It will not be a great job, but it will be money in your pocket. Just practice your story before your interview, in the mirror is best. If you practice, you can also practice skirting the topic (of your NP schooling), and possibly some lies. But if you seem sincere, and learn a bit about their company, and interview well, you may be able to pull it off. You can even ask your fellow students, a friend you trust, or a family member to mock interview you.

I have worked the entire time I am in school, so it is not going to be an issue for me. My department is well informed on my school progress. Getting ready to go part-time after all.

And if you hate the job, just smile and get through it, keep your eyes on the prize!! ;)

db2xs,

I would just say you have other commitments. Legally, I don't think they can press you, but if they do just tell them you have a chronically ill family member and those days are your 'shifts' to take care of that person.

Just to let everyone know, the second question the interviewer asked me was, "Are you in school?" LOL

There's only so much lying that I could do in this interview because I have already been working in this institution for four years and other people I've been working with know that I've been in school. It would have been different if I interviewed at a totally different place.
