  1. New Grad changes Preceptor. Help!

    Welcome to nursing they are all witches
  2. Would you call in sick?

    If you read my post then maybe you would see that j am on orientation ans need no coverage! It absolutely isnt about the commute, whether I had to drive 10 minutes or take the bus (which was absolutely an option) i still wouldn't have gone in. I had...
  3. Would you call in sick?

    ..and I slept soundly for 12 glorious hours! I felt like a new woman today!
  4. Would you call in sick?

    Thank you everyone for the comments. I did call out sick, as again it just wasn't safe for me to care for patients or drive! Alas the applications and resumes are out there, so I am hoping I find a closer to home job soon, that doesn't involve flip...
  5. Would you call in sick?

    LOL... Too funny! I never called out sick when I was a full time medic, because I loved it (sigh). Nursing not so much...
  6. RN volunteering at the border?

    It's nice of you to want to help, but I think you would need some sort of organization backing you up for both safety, and for licensing and insurance. It is likely if you went alone you would just end up getting hurt, and to be honestly 90 percent...
  7. Rising insurance premiums through work

    Thank Obama care for this!! We now have to subsidize insurance for people who do not get it through work, but who are required to have it. The private insurance companies have to make up for this loss of revenue somewhere, so guess who gets to pay!...
  8. Would you call in sick?

    I would love this, but right now I am being precepted and am subject to my preceptor's preferences, which is to not have clustered nights. Also our team is so small it is hard for the scheduling person for what they want. I have tried to work wit...
  9. Would you call in sick?

    Just to clarify the actual physical commute driving, with little to no traffic is 50 minutes which is more then doable. The only time I get this is when its a saturday or sunday shift that starts at 7 am, otherwise its horrendous. I figured it would...
  10. Would you call in sick?

    umm, this has nothing to do with the commute, and more to do with the fact that I got no sleep and it was unsafe for me to drive or care for patients! Nothing to do with my commute, I just literally couldn't fall asleep because I am not used to sleep...
  11. Would you call in sick?

    Unfortunately I have a mortgage ans other Bill's so I cannot resign until I have another job offer in writing! I do have an interview next week, so hopefully that will pan out.
  12. Would you call in sick?

    Hi all, Just want your opinion on whether or not you would call out for this. I took a new job, which I sincerely regret because I hate almost everything about it, except for the kids I care for. The job itself, the hours, some of the team members e...
  13. Lost 15 yrs of Senority by changing departments

    I think the seniority thing accounts for the amount of vacation time, and other benefits that come with being in the same hospital for that number of years, but NOT seniority within a department. In my opinion you should not be upset, as people who ...
  14. Is Giving 2 Weeks Notice Ancient Practice?

    I have only had three nursing jobs in 11 years, and have given two weeks notice to the first one (I still work at the second two). I was per-diem at the first one and gave them three weeks, since the schedule was out that far. I always attempt to g...
  15. Only you can answer that. I make 95K a year as an RN, but I live in an expensive area. LPNs here only make probably 50K maybe. It isn't just about the money, it is also whether you want the increased responsibility, if you want to work in a hospi...
