Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 She’s got mail!

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 Or maybe she’s looking over her pay stub.

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 Nah, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 can’t be that. Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 She’s smiling!

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 The size of our paychecks (and what we go through to increase it) is the subject of this guest post by Julie, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 a registered nurse with an interest in finance who is a staff writer/blogger at The Millionaire Nurse Blog.

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 Welcome, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 Julie and thanks for guest posting at Emergiblog!

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 Take it away…….


Working Overtime? Are the Benefits Worth the Risks?

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 We go to work week after week, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 trudge through shift after shift aiming for that one special day…payday!

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 There never seems to be enough to meet our financial demands of mortgages, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 car payments, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 insurance, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 child care, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 fuel, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 and other day-to-day expenses that keep our wallets and bank accounts drained.

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 In short, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 we all just need more money. Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 As nurses, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 our easiest resource is working overtime.

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 But after working a long, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 exhausting week:

  • caring for needy patients and families, minipress 2mg pills $83.00
  • running down physicians for orders they failed to give you (not you, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 Dr. Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 Dean!)
  • dealing with the demands of managers and administrators who are out of touch with the real world

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 I would be insane to go back for another shift!

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 But nurses are compassionate creatures. Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 We care about our patients and each other. Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 We can’t just sit at home while our co-workers are struggling, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 short staffed as usual!

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 (And that extra $300-$500 sure would be nice!)

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 So what do we do? We agree to work another shift. Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 It may be simply to pay that overdue bill or maybe those Lucky Brand jeans or the latest techno gadget such as the iPad or Nook reader we’ve had our eyes on. Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 Christmas shopping is the biggie…how can I afford that iPhone my hubby is dying for?

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 But are the financial benefits worth the risks?

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 Nurses are extremely concerned about the care their patients receive, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 yet don’t realize the risks of harm to their patients through increased errors by working extra shifts. Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 Most hospitals have changed nurses’ schedules in recent years from 8-hour shifts to 12-hour shifts, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 lowering staffing requirements for the hospital.

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 However, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 studies show that fatigue increases and mental alertness decreases with the extended 12-hour workday even though nurses may not be aware.

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 Medication errors are the number one area affected by fatigue!

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 Considerations:

  • Do errors occur during a regular work shift? Sure, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 they can! But it is more likely to occur when you?ve worked longer hours, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 are physically tired, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 and not as mentally sharp.
  • Your family…whether you have children or not, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 the strain your work places on you mentally and physically not only affects you, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 it also affects your spouse and children.

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 Nurses who work extra hours seem to burn out quicker and tend to become chronic complainers.

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 Who wants to live and work with a grouch?

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 It’s a matter of establishing priorities. Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 Is the financial benefit of that extra shift worth the lack of time spent with your family?

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 (During the time of our economic crash, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 I was guilty of working every extra shift I could get. Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 While the extra money was great, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 I was totally unaware, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 until my husband finally communicated with me, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 that my extra time and focus spent at work made him feel lonely, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 and unappreciated! Wake up call!)

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 So, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 where does that leave us in regards to needing extra income or wanting to help our co-workers when staffing is short?

  • Don’t give in to working that extra shift if you’ve been short on sleep or have already had a very busy, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 exhausting week.
  • Make sure working the extra hours doesn’t jeopardize your family
  • Don’t forget about taxes-that extra income will be reported to Uncle Sam! Been there, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 done that!
  • Remember, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 trimming expenses first is always an option

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 Think about the safety of the patients you care for, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 the strain on your family, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 and the added stress on yourself and choose your extra hours wisely! When it comes to making mistakes, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 administration may forget they begged you to take that extra shift.

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 The risks could very easily cost you your license or family!

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 Reader Questions:

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 Have you ever worked when you knew you weren’t safe?

Minipress 2mg pills $83.00 Have you ever been pressured into working shifts, minipress 2mg pills $83.00 and then wound up regretting it because you knew you were not at your best?

    Great post!

    I purposely avoid OT (since my institution hasn’t mandated it) because of the very reasons mentioned.

    I have worked with these grouches, who really are putting patient safety behind their own bills.

    While we get many opportunities for financial education where I work, people do not get it. They refuse to get it, and also, your coworkers suffer too, when they have to pick up your slack because you’re not doing your job with adequate sleep, etc.

    I value my license, my patients and my family, and I know when to say when too much work is too much.

    Thank you for your comment!

    I realized through my own experience of pulling many extra shifts that it does have a negative effect on you. You may not realize it at the time, but you do not funciton up to par when working extra shifts and short on sleep.

    I believe that we have to look at the entire picture and ask ourselves whether we truly benefit from the extra money. I do not begrudge anyone working an occasional extra shift…I do it myself. But working extra shifts on a regular basis CAN BE extremely risky!
