I work weekday baylor........16 hrs shifts, twice a week. I usually work Mon and Thurs or Tues and Friday........they used to let us work back to back shifts but recently stgpped that. No weekends!!! That's because on weekends they have it covered with weekend baylors who work both days 7am to 7pm. We work 32 hrs and get paid for 40 hrs. I love it!
As for job descriptions at my facility, we have the supervisor who is an RN. Then there are 5 units that are either covered by an RN or an LPN. The same responsibilities, do the same things.......first med pass, finger sticks\insulin , xrays/labs......report problems/dealing with family members/giving cna's their assignments........then maybe get to eat,lol.....then treatments which include dsg changes/g-tube etc.......resp/urinary assessments.....try to sqeeze in some charting before next med pass,lol.....then we have to sign off on the I&O's and other paperwork........I'm not saying in no way that lpn's are the same as rn's, lol, not even going there. Just wanted to say that where I am, the same is expected out of us. If there is an rn scheduled for one of the units and calls out sick, they cover it with either lpn or rn.........We are all called "charge nurse" of our unit. Obviousely, as lpn's we cannot supervise.
Anyways, back to main issue. It's great because it gives you more hrs/days to have a life. Ofcourse, they tend to call you alot to work. What I do is sometimes work pool. It gives me some extra money which is always nice. Oh yeah, if we do work say another 8 hrs shift, it is not overtime for us. You have to actually work 40hrs, so since we are 32 hrs, it is straight time. Then after that it is OT. Last week, I worked Mon and Wed and I was off until the following Wed(again wed and fri).....so all in all, I had 6 days off(our week starts on Sunday). One thing that kind of bothers me though is that some(even coworkers)tend to think that you are not a full-time employee and that we ONLY??? work 2 days as opposed to their 5 days. I know that I shouldn't let that bother me, but it does. It is not always easy to do these hrs, I work 3pm until 7am and beleive me, sometimes by 3am I am beat!! My coworker also does the same shifts as they did not offer 7am-11pm and won't. I prefer these hrs anyways, less people working, so you don't get all that stuff that goes on during the day shift..
Good luck, you'll know soon if you like it or not. We have had 6 who did weekday baylor and now it's only 2 of us, so it's not for everyone.
