What Nurse doesn’t like overtime?!

What Nurse doesn’t like overtime?!

OT = Over Time
OT = A Nurse’s BFF

That extra pay is always nice, but beware of the notorious tipping point.

One of the benefits of being a Nurse is that infamous 3-day work week. In a perfect world, your full-time job on requires 3 shifts per week, so in your mind if you pick up an extra shift (or 2… or 3) you could make some serious cash!

You work the overtime, you put in the extra hours. Those extra hours take a toll on your overall health. I don’t know about you… but it only takes one bad shift to put me over the edge (maybe it’s just me?) I literally drive myself into the ground with that money as my motivator.

Then you get your paycheck two weeks later…

It seems “the man” had other plans for your money. I’m talking about taxes. The higher your paycheck, the larger the amount of monies that are deducted (10% of $10 is $1, but 10% of $100 is $10). And these deductions of course, especially if you enroll in other voluntary benefits.

Everyone has a different tipping point based on multiple factors, this is just my warning message to you to be aware that this tipping point exists.

I don’t know about you, if I’m going to exhaust myself I want to see the money!!!

Working the holiday?

Yes, working the holidays suck. But would you rather work the holiday… or be the patient?

Let’s try and remember how our patient’s holiday is going? Stop bitching. The holiday work is not going anywhere. Most of us work a job that is 24/7/365. We don’t get to ‘close up shop’ just because the calendar tells you it’s a recognized national holiday.

Maybe we could try and make our patient’s holiday a little brighter?

I want to thank every Nurse out there who has (or soon will) clock in during the Holiday (which is probably most Nurses in our profession).

And here’s to the next Holiday when we will all have to figure out who’s going to ‘cover the shift’.

I appreciate you taking one for the team and allowing the others to spend the day with their family.

The sacrifices we make are never-ending.

Shouldn’t everyone have their birthday off work?

Birthday tip 101…

Request off work for your birthday. Seriously folks. Who wants to work on their birthday?!!!

I made the mistake of not planning ahead for my birthday this year, and ended up working a shift….. a very long shift.

We ALL know what happens when you actually schedule something to do on a day you work. The shift goes down the drain…. and you usually end up leaving work so late that your plans are ruined.

Have the forward thinking… and the predictive skills to think ahead! I apparently lost that particular skill this past year. [Maybe I’m getting old?]
