    When I worked at a hospital that I loved, but couldn't take the pressure of one unit anymore on a full time basis, I changed my fulltime status to a per diem status at the same hospital. I was so much happier and less burnt out after work. Whatever you decide to do, good luck to you.

    I think the only thing you can do is give a 2 week notice that is ample time for them to find a replacement. Your whole well being is far important than stressing over burning their bridges. Life is short you don't know how many days you have left. I say if you have done all you can do! Do what makes T-bird happy damn everyone else! I get so tired of the slave mentality we have when it comes to our jobs. If you went to work and fell out with a catastrophic stroke you will be simply replaced. We are replaceable. Your good health is not! Too many jobs too many jobs.

    My attitude is this because I had a dear friend pretty much walked off her job. She was going through a tough time and only requested that she have an easier assignment. Instead of trying to be sympathetic they gave her a hard assignment and she refused it and left. We all have our moments and nursing you would think would understand! I hope you find joy in whatever you decide to do. Good luck
