    PTO not in the budget for remainder of year

    Thank you all for your advice. We can transfer up to 160 hours to next year.

    It is a hospital. I am a new nurse but "PTO is already budgeted in" as you said is something I've heard others with management and budgeting experience have also said and they are confused as well.

    yes they are excluded Yes, the rule you are describing has been in effect every year at this hospital - no PTO from mid-December to mid-January. What I am asking about LENGTHENED the time period to include some of October, all of November, and all of December. This is in addition to the blackout period that we just had (all of September and half of October) where we couldn't take off because we added a new computer system and between staff being at training and going live and learning the new system. So, we have not been able to use PTO (unless previously approved) from Sept -Jan except for 2 weeks in Oct.

    How Do You Fit In 30mins Of Exercise In Your Work Day?

    this might sound like a dumb question, but on night shift what's considered your "day off"? I always want to try and workout but I am too tired right after my shift to workout then. But I feel like the irony is that exercise might help alleviate some of that fatigue

    Well regarding holidays that is an even better unit policy- you either work the holiday or the eve of the holiday. So as night shift I work every holiday

    Thank you, this is what I was wondering about. I have reached out to HR and they haven’t gotten back to me. just to be clear to those who keep saying about the holiday period, I am not referring to that. We were told (just my unit) that we (just RN’s) cannot use PTO from Oct. 28 until after the New Year and that the reason is budget related. That is a longer period of time than our hospital policy of mid-December to mid-January.

    We have a use it or lose it for over 160 hrs. And we also had a major software change where we couldn’t use PTO. This new period of time falls between that and the holiday blackout period
  8. My manager informed us recently that we cannot use our PTO for the rest of the year due to a budget issue. Is this a common policy / problem?
