I am about to quit with no notice and no warning

  1. I hope someone here can identify. I am a certified case manager who is a sub-contractor. A lot of people thing I have the dream job. I don't, nobody seems to understand why I would want to quit. It's because they want case manager's to say they have one, then the attorneys, insurance companies and people you contract for blame you for everything. I'm so sick of taking the fallout for everything. I have been out of the hospital for so long I don't even know where to begin. HELP

    Good day:

    There are extremely few valid reasons a future employer would accept for quitting without notice.

    Is there a reason that if you were to quit, you would not give two weeks notice?

    Thank you.

    Give notice and leave on a good note. No matter how much you want to leave a job, whether it was a job that put you through hell, let me tell you. If you know how hard you worked, and how unappreciated you felt, let them lose. Walk out right, give your notice, and smile out. No need to walk out letting everyone see that they got to you. Good luck.

    It's never a good idea to quit without notice. It's better to put up with the pain for two more weeks, or better until you get another job. I think employed people have a better chance of getting employed in the future if they don't have to explain why they are not working. Just my opinion. I feel like quiting without notice at times, but I grin and bear it, hoping that I can find another job. I know it's not easy easy to find employment when you have been working outside the hospital in a specialty like case management. I do some case management and I find patient compliance to be a major obstacle to achieving good patient outcomes. The outcomes based healthcare, with criteria such a decrease hospitalization, meeting medicare requirements for coverage, or patient satisfaction goals can be very difficult on the nerves. I also find that unless I'm willing to work at the local walmart, my nursing education makes me unemployable elsewhere. I wish I could be more encouraging, but all I can say for now, is that you are not alone. There must be others in the same situation.

    I you want to quit then do so, but show some respect to your co-workers by giving them enough time to replace you.

    Secure a new position first then give your notice. You are much more employable while being employed.

    Can you afford to be without an income for many months? If so, then give notice and quit. If not you should find a new job 1st. It all depends on your circumstances. The no notice thing will follow you around and have a serious effect on your getting hired somewhere less either way though.

    I strongly encourage you to find another job before you quit, and to give your current employer the expected/required amount of notice, work your notice pleasantly, and leave on as good terms as possible. You can never go wrong "taking the high road" in nursing. And, however awful this job is, quitting without notice is likely to come back to bite you at some point.

    Quitting abruptly, without notice, is unprofessional... period.

    While I completely empathize with the emotion - and I would detest being a case manager... thankless, no-win job IMO - shame on you if you give in to your base instinct to flip 'em the bird and walk out the door.

    "Take this job and shove it" is a catchy tune but lousy practice.

    Be a mature professional and handle it the right way.

    Even the Pope gave 2 weeks' notice.

    Listen to the advice the previous posters have given you.

    Although it isn't a requirement to give an employer a two week notice, it's considered respectful and courteous to your co-workers to allow that employer time to find a replacement, as a previous poster stated. Never burn bridges, regardless if you're going to cross them again or not. A quick quit can easily turn into a "no for rehire" when a prospective employer's HR rep calls to verify your previous employment.

    I have to agree with all of the above. Nobody is hiring; they are just spreading their existing employees thinner. Leaving without notice will just get you a 'wouldn't rehire', which can put you at the back of a field of qualified applicants.
