Just part of the job. People aren't sick just Mon-Fri 9-5.

I know that this suggestion seems like a no-brainer, but so many nurses today clock in as if ‘start of shift’ is really the start of their shift. Being early makes you feel less stressed, since you’re not trying to beat the clock. You’ll also have time to do the preparation necessary to start your shift. For example, if you are required to gown-up or be scrubbed, 15 extra minutes gives you time to complete these tasks and to take report at shift-change. This will help prevent resentment from the team you are relieving. Put yourself in their shoes, how do you feel when the person relieving you comes on late?

If you have a good attitude about working on a holiday and you don’t complain, this could go a long way toward having your boss see you as an employee who is a team player, Teach says.
