Admittedly, I stopped reading this post after page three. So someone may have made this point already.  But I just wanted to say, as a nurse myself, how could you up and quit on your patients without a notice? And now your co-workers will have to cover for you and work extra hours. I think this was a very selfish move from all angles. You would have needed this reference for a RN job but now you won’t be able to use it since you abandoned your patients and co-workers. I wouldn’t want you to work at my facility if you could just up and quit like that.

I would try to get my job back!! When I was younger, I quit jobs a couple times and immediately regretted it as knowing I quit a job turned out to be more stressful than the job stresses.

Now – I do have a question, how much longer would your intense schedule be for before there is light at the end of the tunnel. And what can Fiance or your family do to help you with your stressful schedule?

By the way, I would not work in home health care to get experience. Isn’t that why you went to school, so as not to be a CNA???With  your three kids, PeachyMama, I would probably also choose a nursing field/position after graduation that is not a burn out position. Perhaps your nursing career could be in doctors offices or working in a specialty such as nutrition. You should consider this or you will be back on The Bee in a few months burned out in your high paying hospital nursing job while taking care of a special needs child. You and your fiancé are blessed to have each other but I would be extra careful about my career choices since you do have some financial backing!

gingerminty:  I think what HannahGrace is trying to say is that most Bees don’t become financially successful by behaving in an unprofessional and impulsive manner but by self discipline! I don’t think PeachyMama is lazy or self indulgent — in fact quitting that particular job with its serious issues and it interfering with school plus having a special needs child is probably the right decision.

But she should have asked for medical leave/called in sick even or given notice! Not to do so doesn’t necessarily predict that PeachyMama will always make decisions in such a manner but is it something she should look at and learn from!!!

gingerminty:  BelliniChic: Not sure how long you have been around, but in the 3 years I have been on the bee, it hasn’t changed much (even after the massive website overhaul). Also, it’s not controlling behavior because we are posting on an internet forum. It’s pretty hard to “control” someone you don’t have any physical contact with and even if you really want to stretch it to say so, the OP shouldn’t be so strongly influenced by random strangers.

Just like any internet forum there are people who agree and disagree.

somethingbee:  +1 The OP provided one side of the story, we responded and then she provided additional details. We obviously don’t have all the information (hence why she shouldn’t take our advice too seriously), but the majority of posters had a reaction in response to her first post. 

So to recap, the OP made a post that provided partial context, it was highly emotional and painted a much more dire situation in which she solicited advice. Then the majority of the posters gave advice one way, the OP disliked it, and then called us all bitches. Sounds like the good ol’ weddingbee I have always known.

Nailed it.

I’ve been posting on WB for years, called someone out for being a bitch and got moderated to death. This poster calls the entire website a bunch of bitches because, as you pointed out, they didn’t agree 100% with her– and it’s still here days later. This website sometimes, I swear. It’s helpful on one hand, and completely crazy on the other.

 

OP– glad it worked out.

bmo88:  Yup. I’ve been on the bee since 2012 and it hasn’t changed. New posters always say that and then claim they were lurking all that while before or had a different user name but won’t divulge it. Lol. Okay then. If they were here, then they know this isn’t true.
