Manda­tory standby/​call is a huge dissat­is­fier. The WSNA officers discussed this issue at length at nurse confer­ence committee, and Overlake agreed to remove the require­ment to sign up for manda­tory standby shifts in L&D. On March 24, Peggy and Overlake admin­is­tra­tion insti­tuted volun­tary sign-up for standby shifts. As such, if nurses do not sign up for volun­tary shifts, the previous manda­tory sign up require­ment for standby might be reinstated.

Please consider signing up for volun­tary standby.
