Today is the say thta I've been dreading for a week. Back to work (it's a 4 letter word 'round here). I work a week, then I'm off for a week. We're so short staffed I am almost certain that they'll ask me to do something else for a while. Anything beats qw hour shifts in this ER. I work 7 nine hour shifts in a row. UGHHHHH but at leas I have a job!!! Mac

Agreed! It's always the "do more with less routine" where I'm at...everything suffers from top to bottom. Getting ready to do 56 hours myself before I'm off again...maybe now is a good time to start drinking coffee. There is always a bright side somewhere...looks like you may have found it!

That must be tough. The first day back must be harder than the following six. I don't think I could get used to that type of schedule. Of course, I've said that about nearly every new schedule I've ever started. Be kind to thyself, sweety!

Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...

We should form a nurses group here so we can all whine and then everyone here would KNOW what health care is really like!
