I actually left my bedside RN Med Surg position in 2011 do to the indifference with scheduling. It was a rotating shift when I accepted it 7p - 7am/7a - 7pm. But I had discussed with my UM wanting night shift only when I took the position. She said when staffing allowed for it, yes, we could do it. There is more demand for day shift anyway so it wouldn't be a problem. Well, after 2 years of the crazy rotating I got pregnant and the rotating was not healthy for me anymore. And by that point I realized UM wasn't going to do anything about it. My OB/GYN offered me intermittent FMLA but it would count against my maternity leave...you get 12 weeks per year, no matter the reason. So, when I was offered medications, AMBIEN, while pregnant, just so I could work the wacky shifts, I bolted. My manager didn't think I could get hired at 5 months prego...well, I now work on the phone, teletriage, scheduling, etc. I do work days 8 - 5p No weekends, no holidays, no rotating! Been here 4 years now and have my sights set on a Masters in Care Management. Sometimes I feel bad that I'm not using all my bedside clinical skills, I really didn't want to leave the bedside, but I felt my health and a healthy pregnancy was more important.
