I nearly lost my position in the "unit reconfiguration" that is taking place. They are taking beds from our unit, the cardio-thoracic surgical stepdown, and beds from next-door neurosurgery, and creating a middle unit for otolaryngology and plastics. The positions on all floors were bid on by seniority, and by the hair of my chinny-chin-chin I managed to grab the very last day/eves spot! I would've cried. Not a single cardio-thoracic nurse volunteered to become a plastics/oto nurse. No thank YOU. This whole split cause us to lose some fantastic nurses, and was just unfair and unpopular all around. Everyone had a stomachache, for weeks.
So it is back to business on my unit of choice. I'm ecstatic even if it means being lowest in seniority. But hey- I wanted to work Christmas anyway. Triple time here I come!
