    Stated Reason: Inconvience of insurace benefits.

    Real reason: I was lied to about insurance benefits. My first position an a RN was 40 miles away and out of state. When I accepted the position I was told that they had an insurance plan that would work for me being so far away. It didn't. Who wants to take a sick child that far? I voiced my concerns to my manager, as I never wanted to leave. She tried...but really what could she have done?

    Marla, I like your idea, for staff and residents. You must have quit working at the hospital. Are you still in the same town, maybe the south side?

    Nope, I've been out in the hills north of town for 3 1/2 years now. I work in the next town over, am DON of an assisted living facility, and have never been happier!

    I'll tell you sometime about the nightmare that hospital job turned into........I spent most of 2005 bouncing in and out of the ER for stress-related illnesses, and when I finally figured out why, I walked out of there without even working another shift. No regrets, either.:wink2:

    The moral is, there will always be those who don't communicate, don't understand, and could give a rats behind that people, especially adults, have widely different learning styles, who are in positions of power over you. Don't let them own you. Never let them see you cry. The devil comes in many forms, and I think for some reason he likes to teach nursing.
    Thanks, Indy. Good advice. I beat them to the punch. I immediately emailed my course instructor briefly explaining what happened and asked for a meeting. No, as upset as I am, they will not get the best of me, b/c they no longer deserve it! Linda
