PRN (especially CNAs) question!

  1. How much is a PRN nurse aide typically required to work to keep their job? I know it varies from place to place, but I'd like to get a general idea.

    At my hospital all prn staff works a minimum of 24 hrs a month. For most of us that means 2 12 hour shifts minimum.

    At my workplace, PRN staff must work once every two pay periods. Since each pay period is two weeks, a PRN staff member must work at least one shift every four weeks to avoid getting autoterminated.

    We self-schedule for 6 weeks at a time. I have to work a minimum of two 12-hour shifts during those 6 weeks.

    Well I have two PRN jobs. One at a LTC/Rehab facility and one at a hospital. At the LTC facility I have to work 3 days within 3 months so, basically one shift a month. If not, you'll get taken off payroll. For the hospital, you have to work 2 shifts a month either 8 hours or 12 hours. I really like PRN. At both places I work you can create your schedule, so if you're in nursing school it helps out a lot.
