    Mandated to work Saturday?

    Wow, why so mean? I posted my question to see if anyone dealt with a similar situation and for advice/support, not to get roasted. My thoughts are if the clinic had three slots that needed to be filled and three nurses and the authority to mandate a weekend shift maybe they should have said “pick a Saturday” from the get go. Guess I’ll know for next year.

    Mandated to work Saturday?

    I feel like if this would have been presented differently maybe it would have gone over a little better. If for example my nursing supervisor would have said from the get go, “We have 3 Saturday clinics that you can choose to sign up for but if no one does be forewarned that I can mandate you to work one/more than one of them if I choose to” instead of something that appeared to be optional. Plus I do not feel like much notice was given to me for this situation. I will plan to check with HR today to see what exactly the policy is.

    Mandated to work Saturday?

    Hi, I am new to this site. Just had a very frustrating day at work that I would like some fellow nurses’ advice on before moving forward. I am an RN at a family medicine clinic. We have set hours M-F. A few weeks ago our nursing supervisor announced that the clinic would be offering 3 Saturday clinics and that they needed volunteers to staff these clinics. We have 3 RNs and no one signed up. Today the supervisor sent out an email stating that if no one signed up she would be forced to draw names out of a hat. At the end of my shift today I received an email that I was going to be working this clinic. I am not thrilled with this as my husband and I have plans for the weekend and expensive tickets for a Cubs game. I asked a friend at work if we could really be mandated to work on a weekend when our clinic is not typically even open on weekends. She said she didn’t think so and advised me to reach out to HR on this issue. Personally I don’t think this is fair and that my nursing supervisor should work this shift if there were no willing staff members. My husband however fears that going to HR would cause my nursing supervisor to cause more problems for me in the long run. Does anyone have any advice on what to do about this? Any comments are welcome:)
