unless you don't get paid for it that is!
Shane was paid for 24 out of the 72 hours he worked last week... because 48 out of the 72 hours were spent precepting for nursing school. Shane has worked very hard to earn his RN and he is finally at the tail end of finishing school! He just has to endure 3-4 more weeks of working full time, with no paycheck. In my eyes, it is all worth it! Shane is getting AWESOME training by precepting in the shock trauma ICU at IMC. It was such a blessing that he was chosen to be in this ICU because there are so many patients that have endured life or death accidents and who are in need of critical care. Shane's eyes have been opened wide to how delicate life truly is, and he is now starting to understand the depth of his own injury 2 years ago.
Currently, Shane is back at the hospital working a 7 PM - 7 AM precepting shift, then working again from 3 PM - 11 PM. (Keep in mind this guy has to commute 40 minutes just to get to work!) I am so proud of him and hope that I can give him all the support he needs during this tiring time of his life...
What he REALLY needs are some extra hours in the day for homework, and SLEEP!
