    I'm beat.

    Previous week, I'd worked Thursday night thru Saturday night. Then I worked Monday night thru Thursday night (this week).

    Friday night off.

    Saturday night thru Tuesday night (still going on off course...).


    I'm starting to lose a little track of days and nights now - just "when do I get to work, when do I get off and when do I go back next".

    Kinda unhealthy - mental wise. So I told my charge nurses - one of them is semi adamant that I DON'T HAVE A CHANCE in shifting to 3x12s/week because "there are none available". I know for fact that this is pure BS - and that she is PROBABLY avoiding this because it might make her scheduling task(s) a little more complicated.

    I'm debating if I ought to take this up with the floor director and let him know that working 5 nights a week is absurd and not really pleasant for me and that I need to switch or I'm liable to go bonkers!

    *sigh* Other than 'home' and 'work', I have little to no 'life'

    Roy, that does suck. I know about having no life -- I'm having a hard time even fitting in 'home' between 'school' and 'work.'

    Roy - stop debating with yourself and go talk to someone about this. 5 nights a week is absurd. I unfortunately did the same thing as a new nurse - it is NOT healthy.

    Glad to know I wasn't the only one to "agree" to do five nights a week!

    No, seriously. I'm not kidding! Of all the nurses on the entire freaking floor and float pool - I'm the ONLY RN working FIVE nights a WEEK! :stone

    Steph ~ I think I've made up my mind. I am going to talk to my Director. But he is on vacation right now. I think it would benefit better if we had a "face to face" talk rather than a "I'm informing you about my intents and hope you acknowledge them" kinda case.

    You have a PM heading your way...
