    I am considering quitting after four months..

    I meant to type 2 years experience! It won’t let me edit.
  2. Very long post! I am an ICU RN with 4 years of experience. I went from full time to PRN at my first hospital to accept a full time position at a hospital much closer to where I live. itnwas not an ICU position, but a rapid response team position. Which I wanted to try, I am always interested in learning new things as soon as I began orientation, the covid pandemic began and the hospital switched to a surge schedule. The new rapid unit was put on hold and we were never told. Rather they cut orientation off and threw us into a med surg float pool (again without really notifying us.) I stated I am not a med surg nurse (I have always struggled with the patient load and work much more efficiently with 2-3 very sick patients.) and I would be happy to stay assist during covid in the ICU, otherwise I would be leaving and staying at my first hospital in the ICU. they kept putting me in med surg, while the ICU nurses kept saying how they needed help. then I didn’t even receive a schedule and no one answered my calls. one day as I was about to call and quit, the ICU director ssaid I can use your help. From that point on I was in the ICU. I got zero orientation and had to teach myself the charting system. Figured policies out by myself. But I stuck it out and roughed through, we all were in the pandemic. I even contracted covid and only missed three shifts, I kept working at both hospitals fastforward to now.. I frequently am not given a schedule and I have to make my own. I don’t have an actual supervisor, as I don’t have a unit I belong to. I just am placed in ICU as RN.” I get no info on the unit I originally agreed to work at. And now the ICU staff is questioning why I am still there, I’m not “part of them.” And the pandemic surge is over. no one answers my emails. It is like I have slipped through the cracks. I had to call out this Saturday and Sunday for a family emergency. The staffing supervisor said to notify my unit supervisor. I said I didn’t have one.. I tried notifying the ICU supervisor and the woman who hired me. and no reply. I don’t have a schedule yet again. Looooong post but I have been feeling a strong urge to give an appropriate notice and move on to a more organized and stabilized position in a different hospital. I am not one to quit easily and I feel I have really been out through the ringer here..And maybe if it had been different timing, it would’ve been different experience for me. any opinions?

    Quit new LTC job for dream job offer?

    Ive done multiple internships at DOC facilities as I was curious if I would enjoy the job I've i became a nurse, and I loved it. :)
  4. OK SO I am a recent grad of a few months who recently relocated. I accepted a job offer on the rehab unit of a Rehab/LTC facility and have completed one week of orientation and I am scheduled for two more weeks. I work 8 hours a day M-Th and every other weekend. I don't love it so far as it is not really in my interests, but I don't hate it. A job is a job as a new grad. However, just yesterday, I received a call about a job offer for a prison. I love correctional nursing and trauma nursing! It is definitely a dream job! The orientation starts in 2 weeks. What do I do? I don't want to screw over my current facility, and I would still be willing to work for them part time, granted they would be able to work around the orientation week for the prison. But what do I tell them? When? Do I say it now, and have them fire me during orientation? I don't want to burn bridges and have them think I'm ditching out 1 week in after they have already taken time with me. UGHHHH
