this is my situation. I recently left a rehab job due to bad conditions at work, which have recently improved, so im told, i got another job in medsurge at another hospital. I was hired on the spot, that should have been a red flag, anyway ive been there a month. im still in orientation, however i realized medsurg is not for me. i made a mistake. I ve done medsurg before as a new nurse, didnt like it then, dont like it now. but i had decided to try again. shame on me. well i was on medical leave from the rehab job when i got the medsurg job. it didnt occur to me that this could be a problem. they did not tell me that when i resigned. now that i realized medsurg is definatly not for me, i asked for my old job back. the rehab manager said yes but the don and hr told her it was up to her and the only issue is that i left while on eib. that labled me as ineligible for rehire. however the rehab manager dicided to give me another chance, thank god. i only have to fill out a new application, but since it has not been 3 months since i quit, everything would just pick up from when i left, like pto and benifits. Im very happy to have my old job back. The hr director did not look too impressed when i picked up the application. Now i have to tell my boss at the medsurg job. not looking forward to that and scared. i feel like crap and im so guilty, i dont know why i feel this way. im sure she will tear me a new one when i talk to her. I am schelduled to work this weekend, but dont know if i need to put in a 2 wk notice since im still in orientation. i tried to call her early this am but she was not in yet so left a message for her to call me back. well its been 3 hours, no call back, dont even know if shes going to work today. i will get in touch with her today somehow. im just so darn scared and guilty for doing this, but i just cant work medsurge, its too much for me. i am a nervous wreck at work, have so much anxiety about it.
i dont sleep well and dread going to work. does any one have advise on how to tell this manager i quit? i need help. fast.
