I need a Little support. I worked as a resident nurse in ALF. The pay and constant on call and turn over had me running for the door. I got a new job at a state veterans home as the LPN in their dementia unit. 7p-7a, 72 hours a pay period. Week 1 of the pp is 4 shifts(so there is 8 hours of OT) and the second week is only 2 shifts. It's been awhile since I worked straight nights....and it's been awhile since I've worked with veterans..... I've been a nurse for 12 years, have 3 boys, and a disabled vet husband so child care is no issue..... did I jump out of the frying pan into the fire??? I just want my off time to be....my off time.
