  1. Hello y’all. We are getting ready to buy a house. We are 1.5 hrs away from my new job, husband works where we currently live. Our dilemma is where to buy a house. I am scheduled to work 3 shifts/ week, husband works 5 days/week. If we get closer to my work, houses are so much more expensive, maybe 50K more, less land. If we get a house where were at right now, it’s so much more affordable, closer to outdoors, more land and easier for my husband since he will work 5 days a week. I just want to add that my parents live 1 hr away and my mother in law lives 20 minutes away from my work so I am always welcome to stay there if I am too tired to drive the 1.5 hrs or when it snows bad. We don’t have kids so that’s not an issue. Just want to hear any thoughts. Thanks!

    Weekend schedule. Thoughts?

    Thank you for the insights. That’s what I am thinking, is to get my foot in and hopefully move around the hospital because it is a huge one. My husband is very supportive and that’s keeping my head up.

    Weekend schedule. Thoughts?

    Hi all! Here is a little background. I am a new RN and really wanted to get into this organization, better pay, better benefits. Got an interview for a FT inpatient med psych unit job (night shift, 3 12’). The administrative assistant when he called to set up an interview, he said it is a Wednesday night to Friday night schedule but he didn’t sound so sure about it. So here comes the day that I got offered the job, HR called me and of course I accepted it. While I was on the phone with HR, the administrative assistant was calling me to tell me that the schedule he has for me was Friday night til Sunday night and could potentially change in the future since he changes the schedule every 6 months. I felt disappointed. I don’t mind working every other weekend but the “every weekend schedule” is throwing me off. My husband gets the weekend off, we don’t have kids. My family also don’t work the weekends so I already feel like I’m going to miss out on things. I messaged the admin. assistant if they could be flexible in letting me work Thursday night until Saturday instead of the Friday night to Sunday night so I can at least have Sunday with my husband and family. Any thoughts from nurses working just weekends? I still plan on pursuing the job because I really want to get in, just need a little push to work every weekend.
  5. How do I ask a question?
