Ok, here's my dilemma: I just started my ADN program last week. I only had a day to prepare because I was on the alternate list and got the call literally a day before classes started. Well, 2 weeks prior to this I took a job as a tech at a local hospital. When I interviewed for the position, my manager ended up having an emergency and the HR lady got stuck in a meeting, so I ended up interviewing with the DON of the hospital. During the interview I told her that I was on the alternate list and my schedule could be subject to change very last minute. So I got hired for full time and my ADN program is full time 4 days a week, so I was looking at the schedule yesterday and for the next 4 weeks Im on the schedule for every fri, sat, and sun! My manager was supposed to meet with me about re-working my schedule last Thurs. but ended up not coming in to work. Needless to say I cant work and go to school 7 days a week because not only am I going to need to time to study, but I am a SINGLE MOM of a 3 year old! So Im going to ask if I can go down to part-time, but this is only my 4th week of work, so Im wondering if anyone can give me some tips on how to talk to my manager about this? Thanks!!
