I've been seriously considering transferring to per diem status. I'm just tired. I work on a very busy, chaotic floor and I'm pushing 40.
I'm tired of the long shifts, the politics, orienting the never ending flow of new grads (because our turnover is so high), being charge with full assignment, etc. and so on.
I feel worn out and abused.
Anyway, enough ********. LOL
Does anyone work per diem? Is it worth it? I'm afraid of switching and then getting no hours because my NM can be vindictive.
BUT it would be so nice to just schedule myself for a few shifts a month until I find something else I want to do.
