There are hiring freezes at the hospitals in my area so out of nursing school
I was lucky enough to land a part-time position in a LTC position in which I absolutely enjoy working with the residents. The only problem is that my wife was laid off from her full-time job as a clerical assistant due to downsizing so I am trying to figure out how to find a Per Diem position (or positions) without my part-time place of employment becoming angry. This is to make more money to cover rent and pay for the high costs of health insurance. We have cut back to the "bare-bone" necessities to make ends meet. I have asked for extra shifts but they say that they have to give the shifts according to seniority, as I am towards the bottom as of now. I pick up anything they give me but it is not consistent enough to qualify for employee-sponsored health insurance. I am able to get 1 extra shift every third week. How would I go about finding Per Diem work without my current employer finding out so I may work full time hours and make enough to cover health insurance, rent as well as groceries and student loans?
