Can Nurses work Part-Time?

  1. Can RN's work part-time or are employers looking mostly for full-time employees?

    Any information would be appreciated.

    Where I work part time is the preferred option. Lower benifit costs for the hospital, If you pick up a day it's not overtime. Staff also like part timers-If I need a day off I can ask you to work for me without preapproval. You build seniority slower so I have less competition for vacation choice and bidding on new positions. I you can afford it, it is very much avail.

    Where I work, my NM is actively trying to find more part-time employees. We are switching to an every 3rd weekend schedule in January and I guess they need more pt employees to fill in the gaps.

    Certainly! I have been a nurse for 15 years and always have worked part-time.

    I worked full time nites for years with a part-time day job; (at another employer). Worked very well.
