Hi,

I´m a new nurse with a non-medical background. This will be my first nursing job and it's at a hospital. I'm a mother of two young children and married. I´m so worried starting work in this scary time of COVID 19 but also afraid to miss an opportunity and potentially burning bridges by asking to change my start date. Any advice ?

Same boat! The consensus among everyone I've discussed this/my situation with  is, protect yourself and your family first.

Thanks for that reassuring answer! That’s what I feel in my heart especially for the sake of my children. Wishing you well with your situation as well.

Thank you, I did end up resigning and will not return to orientation. I'm heartbroken but it's probably best (I hope). What crazy times!
