I feel like I work 6-9 days in a row and I am simply exhausted, and I have only been working 4-5 months so far :\
It's good to work full time for the first couple of months because you'll improve much faster. However, once you hit 6 months I'd drop to part time (16 hours a week) and pick up some other ECs.I feel like I work 6-9 days in a row and I am simply exhausted, and I have only been working 4-5 months so far :\
Thats awful! What the heckVariable at 42h to 35h but when I was in school, I did 21-35h. Avg 19-22 shifts a month. Our company's "week" starts and ends on a Wed to get around overtime though.
I am sorry! I think I can handle 36 but I am tired of freaking 50 hr work weeksI was working ~36 hours a week (4 9-hour shifts) when I was fulltime, and it was tough. I was working from 6 pm - 3 am, then studying until it was time to take my kids to school, then going to my own classes. I became an extremely talented cat-napper.
It's what I prefer! We're able to request how much we wish to work a month and my team is good about making sure the schedule is a good fit. The "week" thing is silly though. I feel you on the load. My longest stretch was 12 in a row during the holidays and it felt like crap.Thats awful! What the heck
Sometimes I have to remind a particular provider that I work with of this fact lol. Being expected to pull 13-14 hour shifts before I'm even in medical school just tends to irritate me. Especially when they just came on shift 2 hours ago.Right I totally get this, but the thing is I am not a resident yet
Do you have any friends that are scribes? If you know someone have them forward your resume and put a good word in if they can comment on your work ethic.For those who are scribing, mind sharing how you got the job? I'm trying to find a scribe position and I'd appreciate any advice!
