    At my current place you get 3 weeks to start... but at my old place I could accumulate PTO for vacation so I could actually schedule to take 2 weeks off every 3 months...it was nice... I miss that. (sigh)

    I work full time, 4 10 hour days per week. Every Fri-Sat-Sun off. Holidays off. 5 weeks vacation. Unlimited sick time accrued dovetailing into full pay long term disability coverage. Pension! Pay as a community health nurse is definitely less but government benefits made the job far more attractive to me.

    I get 12 hours of vacation time per month and 8 hours of sick time per month. I work full time. usually around 50 hrs/week. Been there around 10 years. We also get 12 paid holidays/year. In 5 more years, I'll get 16 hours of vacation time per month.

    I've been with my job for a tad over 2 years; I get 3 weeks' vacation. Yes, that's what I automatically started with.

    Here in Dallas I get 11 hours per pay period (every 2 weeks) of PTO...but that's after 10 years with the same hospital...about 7 weeks give or take.

    I was surprised at this thread because I thought that all nurses in the US only got 2 weeks - actually put me off from trying nursing over there!! In the NHS (Wales) we all get 7 weeks if full time (37.5hrs) How ignorant can one person be:uhoh21: :uhoh21:
