As I stated in my greeting, I am on a Nursing Practice Committee at my small (about 110 bed) community hospital. We have finished the issues with floating RN's to different areas and now are working on scheduling issues. Some of the things I would like to know are: Does your hospital self schedule? If so how do you make filling out the schedule fair to all. How long is your schedule? 4 wks, 6 wks, 3 mos and is it repeating ect. How do you determine who gets to take vacation and when? Any input on these issues or other suggestions
would be greatly appreciated and helpful.
