I went to the HON and told her that it was simply unacceptable that I could not have time off for my boards, when I was very specifically promised as such when I interviewed for the position and furthermore told her that I had began sending resumes elsewhere for employment. That got her attention! Now I can have a 'reasonable amount' of time off, so I took 3 days. Even though I got the time afterall, it just seems like you have to fight tooth and nail at this place to be treated like a human being. I sent out two resumes, but am holding off interviewing until after I take my boards. Thanks for the advice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am really glad that you got what you needed, I know that it was not easy, but it was worth it! Sometimes you have to advocate for yourself more than anyone else!
Now, Best of Luck to you with the exam and God Bless!

Good going, huggietoes! That's standing up for yourself!
How dare that Nurse Manager not understand as if she never had to take an exam to get where she is??? Some people tend to forget very quickly the road they had to travel to get where they are which is something they need to remember when it's their turn to reach back and help another person along in their career. I'm glad you got the time off, and I pray you'll pass that exam with flying colors......or would that be flying numbers...or flying grades...
