You go, Johnny Paycheck! =) Good for you, wishing you all the best.
CONGRATS on stepping into nursing on your OWN TERMS!! :)
Congrats on your new job as well...I'm glad you found your on your way to finding your nursing niche...Good Luck!!! :)
And don't feel guilty about ANYTHING...the most important thing as a nurse is self care and maintaining your own spiritual and emotional well being, so you can be the best nurse that you can be! :)
From what I hear from you this is a toxic job and you did well in leaving. I think also that hospitals now with the "upper hand" take advantage of staff thus making matters much worse. Yes take care of yourself first! you are not doing others any service by being burned out.
When a airplane looses cabin pressure or oxygen the parents put the masks first and then their children...
Good for you! You did what you needed to do. If more nurses left toxic situations, there would be less burnout. It takes guts to pick and leave and you did it. Kudos.
I'm glad that you're no longer miserable. However, it's never a good idea to burn any bridge, no matter how good it feels in that moment. You never know when you might need a reference. Nursing is a small community. Somebody knows somebody who worked somewhere and "isn't she the nurse who quit without notice?" I wouldn't have drafted a complaint letter to management either. They already know. That might sound defeatist to you, but it's just reality. You didn't just burn that bridge, you blew it up.:)
Anyway, enjoy your new job. I'm glad it's worked out.
...so sorry that you are having to tolerated this type unprofessional behavior, I am going through a similar experience at my job. I am a older seasoned nurse and I am feeling discriminated against because of my age. Recently my manager called me in her office to let me know that she had wrote me up because one of the physicians in the clinic said I was slow. I do admit that I do sometimes take more time when case managing my patients but it is because I try to complete the majority of work in a timely manner and I try to get the biggest portion of my documentation done when it should be done, unlike my co-workers who are continously taking short cuts and wait until the end of the day or the next day to chart and sign off on their computer documentation. Today was the kicker for me...I had to leave from work early because the weather was getting bad (ice and snow). The doctor was running behind in clinic and there were 2 patients that still need to be seen. I live a hour away from work and new it would be unsafe for me to drive home if I waited until the last 2 patients were discharged, so I told my clinic manager that I would be leaving. There were still 4 other nurses left in the clinic. My nurse manager became angry and rudely told me in front of all the nursing staff that she would report me to HR and have it put on my record that I abandoned the 2 patients and that I would also get a unexcused absence. I felt threatened and bullied and by the time I left I was a nervous wreck and had to calm myself down before I could get out on the road. I want to report her behavior but feel I would be wasting my time because of previous threats that it would do no good to complain to HR because management would be backed by them and it wouldn't matter what nursing staff had to say.
Congrats to you for doing this! I wish you all the best. :)
You should not have to be miserable day in and day out at any job.
Good for you. You will be an inspiration for others. You don't have to stay trapped at a job you hate. I can attest to that. I hate my job but I'm working on an out.
As far as your wedding is it just you and your finance paying for it?
