thank you to each and everyone who gave their advice and feedback.... i am so touched of how concerned everyone is..........
so here's what happened:
i had a pleasant meeting with everyone. i came in to the hr office with a sweet smile and an exchange of "how are you's?" with the mgr. i did not have to say another word .... hrm started talking and explaining to me almost to the context of what zookeeper3 said..... [color=#4f81bd]" while in orientation, our employees may quit without notice at anytime. actually our probation is 90 days, anyone can quit with in that time with no notice, no reprocussions. if you were in probationary time, my belief is that it cannot be held against you.... but we do require a written letter. this may simply be a formality that once the letter is received you are cleared from that facility." ( come to think about it now, elpark --- i think she was the one being defensive, but she was nice though).
going back..... before i went to the facility, i thought of hitting two birds in one stone since i'll be seeing everyone there anyway. first, to get my certification and secondly, to ask the don if their door is still open for me... and yes.... she said it has always been open for me. so i told her that i will be very much interested in 3-11 shift (to handle around 30 residents only). she said she will call me when something comes up for that shift. ( i was thinking, could this really be true?) btw, when i quit, i told don and sd that it's either i will die first or risk patients safety if i continue to work at night shift..... i do not want them to be in trouble because of me.
so, i gave my written letter of resignation to hr cc don. but i was asked by hrm to come back tomorrow for the certification since she was about to leave for an appointment. she gave me her cp no and asked me to call before coming to ensure that she's there and that the letter is ready. (she gave me her cp no. ---- that was so nice, i do not have to wait and park a long time on the switchboard for her).
that was it! julesa,elkpark,and nursemike, i am so glad i was able to read your feedback before i signed off this pm... --- you gave me a great idea! classicdame, angelfirern, kyrshamarks, and straydandelion --- thank you, too!
guys, you made me confident facing everyone. i was so scared and ashamed to go there.... but when my colleagues saw me, they were all smiles asking if i am already coming back.... others did not ask but rather told me i should be back.......... adon was happy to see and spent a minute w me to ask how i am. even the rehab admin whose name i do not know was smiling at me...
thank you, god, for these wonderful people i've met in allnurses.com and at my previous job! even though they won't be able to hire me back ---- i feel just great! good night guys! :loveya:
