Hello I am considering relocating to New Mexico and I have had 2 interviews and both hospitals (1 in Las Cruces and 1 in Albuquerque) and both require self scheduling. At my current  Oregon hospital we have patterns. The idea of a new schedule every 6 weeks and the responsibility for getting it right stresses me out!! I work night shift and don't want to end up with 6 shifts in a row because I screwed up! Plus I will have to sign up for 3 call shifts each schedule period.  Is self scheduling actually wonderful???  HELP
