How To Say NO To Picking Up Extra Shifts

Have you ever been asked to pick up an extra shift at work? And even though many of us already have a set schedule – we still pick up, and for a variety of reasons. But what happens when the requests are happening more often and you really don’t want to work but feel bad about saying no? Do you feel guilty or pressured to still say yes? And if you do pick up the shift, do you negotiate the deal to make it sweeter for you?

In this episode Nurse Alice explains why you may feel bad about saying no to an extra shift request, reminds you that picking up an extra shift won’t solve the nursing shortage, and provides you with some tips on what you can do or say the next time you’re asked to work extra.
