    It means as needed, typically work whenever you're needed and usually don't receive any benefits.

    In addition to what bebobthefrogRN said...at my work LTC facility they used to give the per diem higher pay (d/t not having benefits and being on call/as needed)...they'd since done away with that where I work and you are either considered full time or part time.
