I'm having problems getting staffed and I'm on the beach, I'm a recent new hire. I start paternity leave in November so it seems that everyone is staying away. I split my paternity leave as that's...

...the guidance I was given. But now everyone wants to staff me after I come back. Oh yeah the beach is packed. I learned a lot, built my network, and own/participate in some key initiatives. Any guidance appreciated. I want to take paternity leave. Didn't do it for my first kid and I regret it.

I recognize that this is really easy for me to say, but prioritize this special time with your baby and take the leave as you are entitled to. So cliche but so true, you’ll never get this time back. I love what this job allows me to do in providing for my family but it certainly has given me some regrets about absent times with my kids as well.

Thanks appreciate it

You’re doing the right thing. We have to flex as organizations to make this happen for new dads. Make sure you’re staying involved with activities before your paternity leave so there isn’t any reason to let you go before then.

I have been applying to jobs nonstop and honestly feel so disheartened. I have my MBA with a healthcare management concentration and I even had my resume professionally done. I have almost 4 years total healthcare experience with the last almost 2-2 1/2 years in management. I am ready for a change and looking for a remote job, preferably in healthcare/project/program management. I am even open to entry level healthcare IT. Would appreciate any help!

Got the per diem job. Nice pay. Signed the offer. But they put addendum. 24 hr weekend day shift once a month and 1 overnight call twice a month and 3x 10 hr shift per week.
