Per diem/Part time CRNA positions?

  1. Hi, I am curious as to whether PD/PT CRNA jobs exist and how likely they are to find. Also, is it likely to find employment as a new grad in outpatient/ambulatory settings?
    Thank you.

    Many locums and part time positions. You can find them as W9, 1099 and fee for service.
    A new grad will have a more narrow option of course. Find places where you have back up of more experienced CRNAs.

    Awesome, thanks nomad, its reassuring to know this exists and I most definitely want to work where I have backup/support as its safest for the patient.

    Go to www.gaswork.com. This website lists all full0time, part-time, and per-diem jobs for CRNA, anesthesiologists, and AA's. THis website provides a wealth of information about each job such as, will the CRNA be supervised by a MD, will the CRNA have to take 1st call, will the CRNA have to perform cardiac cases, etc. It's a great website to use for planning future employment opportunities.

    Indeed.com is better. It lists gaswork jobs and other jobs from other sites. Then you can click on one and either go to the website it is listed on or some are direct links to the hospital where the job is located.

    It is well advised for you to get a lot of experience as a newly graduated CRNA. That experience is going to be at a full service hospital and later on you can move to an ASC.

    If you are asking these questions because you don't want to work full time in anesthesia, that is your choice, but I would let the admissions committees know this. They would probably rather admit someone who is not setting conditions so early in the career.

    I disagree. If you want to work part time, do it.

    LOL, who say you have to work full time.

    Who cares what the admissions committee knows about your future employment? It should not be a concern to them. If you are qualified and a good fit, then let it be.

    You would be OK with a part time neruosurgeon working on your brain?

    What's wrong with someone that works a few days a week? I work with plenty of CRNAs that work 2-3 days a week for various reasons, all of which are none of the business of ad-coms.

    Really?
    It's is not the smartest statement I've seen. Are you aware of the many rural facilities that have job share as in 2 weeks n and 2 weeks off?

    CRNAs can choose to work in whatever way they please, as long as there is a job for them. The marketplace rules. You seem to be way too obsessed with working part-time, that I suspect that you have no idea what a CRNA does.

    I work two 12 hour shifts, love it. Have five days a week off. Does anyone really believe that working two 12s instead of three 12s will make someone incompetent or prevent them from getting experience? And once a neurosurgeon is trained they could easily work part time and maintain competence. I can do every type of anesthesia except cardiac, thats just because I have never chosen to do it. I say go for it and work part time, just don't bring it up in program interviews ( they will never bring this up).
