    If you keep it for now, could you decide later that you didn’t want to continue doing it? If so, that’s what I would suggest. Gives you a chance to see how tiring those 6-day work weeks actually are.

    I’d say quit it, especially if the money is not a huge concern.  I feel like the 6 day workweek plus the commute and working holidays will get to you pretty soon (not just you, to anyone).

    @li612:  I’m tempted to say give it a shot but I also know how valuable having days off can be. My partner is a nurse, and for about a summer, he picked up some PRN shifts at a nursing home. he had never worked in a nursing home before (at that point, he had been an RN for 6 years or so? Maybe a little more. He mostly works on a stroke adn telemetry floor). It wasn’t any more work than where he is now, but they were not using digital records at all and it was often dificult to find the doctors. He was required to work a shift every other week, but they VERY quickly were houding him to work more often (since I lived with him, I heard the messages and they would sometimes call mroe than once a DAY. I get maybe calling if you need someone on the fly, but dude, when they are calling him more than everyone else he knows combined, there is a problem). He hasn’t worked there in over 2 years and they STILL periodically call trying to entice him back. Since he didn’t work there regularly, he often felt very out of sorts. At least with you, you know the people you work with. For him, he didn’t feel like he ever got to know them b/c he wasn’t there enough. 

    If you’re used to working holidays in the ER, it probably won’t be that bad to be back into that. What are the pros you see right off the bat to going back to the ER? WHat about the cons?
