I was just wondering how many jobs new grads are working? One job FT, or multiple PT/Per Diem positions? I've worked at least 2 jobs but typically 3 for the last 6 years and I was wondering if new grads are really finding FT... Read More

    I'm working 3nights one week and then 2 nights another week. But I put them together to work 5 straight nights to be off 8-10 days in between. I still do part time as a RT and do that within those days. I'm part time as a nurse as well

    December grad, working FT since a week after passing NCLEX. I am one of the few in my class, however. Many of my classmates are still looking for work of any sort.

    Graduated with my ADN on May 9th, 2013. Got my license May 22nd.

    I have a Fulltime job that I start in July 15th on a CVICU. We work 3 12's on that unit and rotating weekends. Take call, but not sure what the process is for it.


    I currently work partime at a psychiatric facility for young boys. I will go PRN with the psych facility after I start my Fulltime in CVICU. I am also make supervisory visits for my uncles Home Health company PRN. I am careful not to take on more than I can handle, which is why I will likely drop the psych facility altogether after starting my CVICU job.

    I work FT. W/end doubles. Baylor. Geri-psych. LTC
    We have lots of PRN shift work available because management's always calling w/ends to pull shift. I work tomorrow for instance. Managements always fussing about paying OT but management never puts out ads to hire any nurses to pick up the slack. Management offers a GVN position but they don't advertise it.I don't understand it. Many facilities have openings but no one is actually 'hiring'.
    I live in S. Texas.
    I had a HH job but I felt dangerous so I resigned. LOL I'm probably going to get a staffing job. This one facility is nothing but vents and such and I need more exp with airway management.

    Graduated in May'12 and passed NCLEX Aug'12. I got full time work in October'12 as an admissions nurse (not good for new nurse), lasted 4 months and then found the job where I am now and loving it! I work 3-11 Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I have Monday- Thursday to be home with my family and I can also pick up an extra shift if I want to.

    Graduated May 2012 with my ADN. I was hired per diem at a hospital for med-surg and tele (prn was only thing available at the time). I worked 3 to 4 days per week by choice (could work more or less). Husband and I wanted to buy a house so I had to go part time to include my income. I work 3 8 hour shifts per week, every other weekend. It's not bad but I definitely miss per diem. Loved having control over my schedule and working the same amount of time that I do now!
