So. I currently work at LTC nights, 11-7 and It was the first job offered to me and I took it because I was afraid it would be the only offer. Yet of course after I accepted the job several other job offers came but I decided to stay with this one.
There is just not a good moral there and the place old, outdated, and there are roaches. I've had clinicals there before and knew it was the last place I wanted to work at but it had change managements since then and I thought maybe it's got better....not really. The residents are great and a lot of the staff are nice but I sometimes worry about my license...
So, last week after my first shift on my own, that was rough...a classmate message me and told me that they had an opening at her job which also a LTC from 3-11 and she loves it there. She told me the pay rate was 16.75. I get paid 15.25 working nights here. So I thought, well maybe after work then I can drive down there and see about it...so my friend told the DON about me coming by...so after my 8 hour shift that turn into a 10 hour shift...was over.. I went and the administrator came in and talked with him which I knew him because I graduated with his son and then I talked with the DON...fill out an application they said the job is mine if I want it...as soon as the background check comes in then I can come and fill out the hiring packet, do the drug test, and the orientation part.
So, Monday I am going to put in my 2 weeks. Does anyone have any ideas how to break it my DON? I always had this inkling that people there are terrified that I am going to leave because they have had a big turn over. So, I know she won't happy that I am leaving and surely after only being there for a month....and me just getting out of orientating...I've already wrote a resignation letter.
