Sorry this is a vent post.
Straw broke the camels back yesterday and I quit.
Between the nurses gossiping no support from management .....Doctors acting like arseholes. ENOUGH
I don't even know if I can make it through my two weeks notice.....I've been at this place for 7 years and I don't know what took me so long....nothing has changed.
So how do I make it through without blowing up and saying something that I may regret?
Start marking down the two weeks on your calendar____one day at a time, and before you know it........you are out of there!
When I'm in a job that is too much for me to bear, my health status takes precedence over being cordial and giving two weeks notice. I figure if they have the right to hire and the right to fire an employee without notice or explanations, then I have the right to leave a place of employment that mistreats me, or jeopardizes my RN license. I've left jobs after working one day for one particular place, one week for another place, and two weeks for yet another place. I always watch my own back!

I think sometimes just putting in the notice puts you at peace. You might find you are more relaxed and can function better.
Good luck in whatever you do.
I used to work in a hospitail like that in SO Calif The doctor were the worse.One night 11/7 a Doc was drunk wreeked and wanted to see a baby.
I told him NO and he got mad calling for the house superviser .The doc couldn't stand up swaying from side to side needless to say I was written up But I also asked for a copy and wrote my side of the story on it Happened again with another nurse and the Doc was discharged .I quit after 4 years of working there. Sounds like Docter is God theory. To me.
I would take this time to update my work history You could always take a break and do mental health or home health. To break from hospital.
Good luck and hugs we understand

good luck-been there bought the t shirt- seen the film and all that.
left my job last year because i could take no more s**t had no job to go to within a week i had 3 job offers. i had to give 4 weeks notice, seemed to take for ever, because once you make up you mind to do it, you wont to go straight away.
have been in my new job now almost 1 year and very very happy, wish i had done it sooner!!
'dont regret what you have done in life only what you didnt do'
remember- a quote from another thread read yesterday
somedays you are the pigeon and others you are the statue
once again good luck
I work fulltime in LTC and am going to start part-time soon. I have realized that my emotional and physical well-being comes first period. I will be giving them a 2 week notice soon to let them know I will only be available for 2 days a week.
Just knowing this I am feeling better and calmer already. Good luck to you. Hope you will find a better job soon. :) Yes it will feel like the longest 2 weeks of your life but just think how great and happy you will feel on that last day when you walk out and never have to return.
Breathe deep, and count......1, breathe, 2, breathe, 3...................
You do what you have to do.
I got sick of my part time job, too. I worked night shift on that job, and they didn't give a you know what if we had staff or not. SSometimes we would have just 2 aides for 80-90 patients. You couldn't find people to come in. The one who made out the schedule would never post the changes on the schedule at the desk. Just always in her office, so we never knew if we were goinna have coverage or not, just by looking at the schedule. It was a mess, and I do not ever want to have to go back there. I'll have to be starving to go back there.
I could go on and on with the complaints I had about that place.
This was a Berverly Health Care facility, they have places all over the US.

I agree with marking it on a calender...each day. And give yourself something for the last day...something special for you or you and your family! (like a family game night, a movie, out to dinner, or have someone watch kids and have a quiet night soaking in a tub and watching a DVD you want to watch but no one else ever wanted to see...stuff like that!).
Another thing I did that helped me when I have done this is I wrote a 2 week notice letter daily..LOL! Oh boy those better not ever make it to a publisher I will tell you that! But it helped so much to vent it all out and have record of what it was that really ticked me off! Kind of like a bye bye journal! Very theraputic!!!!!
In fact, when I have a particular rough day at work and feel like giving up, I write one too...and get all my feelings onto paper..then I leave it and not read it for 24 hours and come back to it and if needed add more! LOL! Over the last two years at my current work, I must have about 10 two week noticed letters! No, I would never turn those in...oh my no...but I can't believe how much it helps me actually sort out the things about my job I don't like..and sometimes I even can find a way to fix it, but mostly it is just a vicious vent..LOL~!
But anyway...don't forget to give yourself a little something on your last day...you deserve it!

Thank you all.
I took a new job already with quite a pay cut but no regrests so far. I go for my physical tommarrow and will start when my 2 weeks is up.
I appreciate you guys letting me vent especially sense I know most of you know exactly what I'm talking about.
I am so sorry for your troubles. Just be as professional as you can: don't stoop to anyone's level. Keep you head up and show them you are the professional. While you're at it, document everything you can remember; professionally with NO emotion thrown in. Then you'll have a good record of everything in the event you ever need it.
Good luck :balloons: at your new job. Keep us posted.
