    I would like to thank all of you for your input. At the time I am still working with this client because my agency does not have another case for me. I am very stressed out because I am working a split shift (the agency cannot find another nurse to even fill in for me when I need a day off) that requires me to be there at the crack of dawn, go home, come back and leave late in the evening. My whole day is shot with this schedule. I am required to work full-time, 5 days a week M-F and sometimes weekends. I usually like to work 4 days and have a day off for appointments, but I was told that I had to do a M-F split schedule to accomodate the parent's work schedule. I asked him if I could leave earlier when he comes home from work and he is too worried about his other child's after school activities. I love private duty nursing,but some of the families are non-compliant and/or make demands that are irrational. Fortunately, I had one interview and two more lined up at LTC facilities. I hope that one of these facilities hires me because I have had it!

    In a similar situation and only stay because there supposedly isn't another case available, even though I was in the office a week ago and saw a case plastered across the white board with a shift open every day of the week. I will be gone when I find another position. Good luck getting one of those potential jobs.

    Hi caliotter3, I got two job offers shortly after my interviews: one per diem position at a children's rehab hospital and one part time position at a LTC facility. It couldn't have come at a better time! I was fed up with the child's father and his antics.
