Hours that you work ?

  1. as a CRNA, what hours do you work and how many days a week do you work?

    this is just pure curiosity and a glimmer of what I MIGHT one day have the honor of doing.

    thank you in advance.

    150 bed hospital 4 ORs

    35-50 hours a week. Mostly 7-4 weekdays. 1- 2 days a week on call. day post call usually (90%) off. One weekend a month.

    On in-house call right now for OB until 7 tomorrow, have one case in the OR tomorrow, will go home after it is done around 9 or 10, am off through Monday.

    My hours are much, much better than as an RN in ICU or cath lab.


    hope this helps

    400 bed hospital, 24 OR's

    I work three days a week, one 16 and two 12's.

    week one Monday 1500 - 0700, Tuesday 1900 - 0700, Wednsday 1900 - 0700

    week two Wednsday 1100 - 2300, Thursday 1500 - 0700, Friday 1900 - 0700

    week three sunday 0700 - 2300, monday 1100 - 2300, tuesday 1100 - 2300

    repeat,

    This gives me two six day weekends a month, and I do not do call or overtime. I'd have to say its a pretty sweet gig.

    I have not yet graduated, but my schedule as of January will be three thirteen-hour shifts per week. 0700-2030. Call six times per year. Call is 3pm-7am, and the weeks I have call, I work the sixteen hour call shift, and two twelve hour shifts 0700-1930.

    I work two 12 hr shifts (7a-7:30p) and two 8 hrs (7-3:30).
    My call requires a 48 hr in-house weekend every 7 weeks. (7a on Sat to 7a on Mon).
    I am only responsible for cases in the OR and intubations/codes on the floor. The Docs cover OB so MOST weekend nights I will get some sleep.
    I work for a great group and they pay me well, so I can't complain!

    i'm just wondering are CRNA's exempt employees? i must say the hours you guys work are wonderful especially for the salaries you earn. there is no question that you all don't deserve it, my hat goes off to all of you.

    funny you mention this. there is a huge political struggle at my place of empolyment over this very topic, yes we are exempt which protects our employer from paying us overtime. our work agreement also states that 45 hours is whats expected of us each week.
    some argue that we are the perfect mix between hourly and salary (Sourly) as they call us now.
    I submit however that there are many jobs with really the same set up.
    hourly with an minimum garunte per week.
    hour employer of course would have us work however whenever for a little as possible. their phyciains of course.
