Nursing hours all part time?

Rating:
(votes: 0)


I was just browsing RN jobs at hospitals and a lot of them are only 20-28 hrs per week except for ER. Are most nursing jobs at hospitals only part-time? How does one pay the bills with a part-time job or do a lot of people take two part-time jobs?

cuts down on OT

Some people would work the part-time hours and pick up extra shifts anywhere in the hospital they can get them to make up the difference. Another option is to work as occassional at a different hospital to get the extra shifts. Two part-time jobs might not work due to scheduling issues, both during the week and on weekends.

Comment:
Some hospitals are going to part time jobs so they don't have to pay as much in benefits, don't have to guarantee full time hours, etc.

Comment:
Less benefits for part time people. It is all about the money. Follow the money and you will always find the answers to why a system is doing something.

Comment:
Not in TN. Part-time is virtually non-existent except for per-diem and agency. I would love to work part-time, but the job market isn't here.

Comment:
there is still some part-time/prn in mississippi particularly to central ms. seems alot of new grads are having to settle for part time/prn stuff. im lucky to have a fulltime spot (84hrs) and 2 very good partime and prn jobs around 24-36hrs per period. some hospitals are getting away from fulltimers and just using partime/prn new grads..this way they dont have to offer bennefits. i was informed by a manager this is a way they can take advantage of the increased flux of grads and get labor on the cheap.
