I am ****** off and looking to get some opinions.
I work full time in skilled nursing 11-7 shift on a 4-2 schedule and I drive 50 miles to school on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1800-2300 and Saturdays from 0630-0700.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays I get out of school @ 2300 (speeding to school) and arrive to work by 2345.
On Fridays, I work 2300-0530 and get to clinical by 0630. (I've been doing this for the past few months)
Today, 2 cnas called in sick on 7-3 so the charge nurse called the DON and states "it's not fair that he leaves during primetime during our busiest hours) but has told me constantly, " leave at 5 you don't wanna be late cause things happen"
I find out that the DON wants to speak with me and I am so ****** off because I've been there 8 months and he's been there 1.
I attempted to go part time but since he took over he only wants full time and on the 4-2 schedule no exceptions, so I have been toughing it out working 8 hr shifts and going straight to 12 hour clinicals and then driving 50 miles home. Today I got up 3/10 on other days I get up 5/10 my beds are made and lowered, rooms are clean and well stocked, curtains are open, and trashcans are emptied and lined idk what to do ...?? Dropping out of school is not an option and I have to work to pay bills.
On another note, the charge never helps, she answers call lights only to come back to the cnas to tell us what the resident needs. She doesn't toilet, if I have 2 residents that need to be toilette at the same time she will wait with one til I am done with the other instead of doing it!!! Instead of helping me pull up a resident when she's nearby she says " let me go find another Cna". Even though I leave early 1 day a week, my rounds are done and 3 residents are up and ready for breakfast so what the ****?!!!!!
