Thoughts from a Night Shift Nurse #1- Long Term Care

It’s been a long while since I posted but recently, I feel so spurred to write out my thoughts.  Checking on my last post, it was back in June 2016 and I was working night shifts at the LTC that I’m working at.

Working Two Jobs

Time goes by way too fast nowadays, mostly because I’m working two jobs now!  I’m still under orientation in the new job (casual) and working a 0.75 fte at the other place.  At the moment, the two places are working out and not conflicting with each other, but that means I’m working almost 24/7 every week.  On those rare day offs, I’m really enjoying that time with family and friends.

Hopefully I’ll eventually have enough to help pay off my student loans.

I cannot say too much in a public domain, maybe I’ll  rant it all out in a more private post with password, its just that I am really really stressed so bad right now….

but in short…

I lost my part time line that I like, and now feel forced to take on another line that I don’t like. But because if I don’t take it, I’m going to mess up the entire nurses rotation and everyone is going to get pissed.  Plus.. I’ll be bumped down back to casual….
