Night shift and daylight savings.... - Page 4Register Today!
- Nov 8, '12 by DizzyLizzyNurseQuote from blondy2061hThis is how my old job was. My new job pays for the 13 hours, but you have to take PTO in the spring for the missing hour.We have the best of both worlds. We get paid for the extra hour in the fall, and we get paid for our full shift in the spring even though it's an hour less. I'll tell you, though, even knowing I was making extra money that extra hour was awful.

No DT at all? Yikes.
We go DT after 12 in a day and 1.5x after 40 in the week.
DT after 12 makes those 16's much easier... and the occasional double-shift, cha-ching!!

I sometimes shake my head in amazement when I read about the conditions under which many nurses labor.
- Nov 13, '12 by DizzyLizzyNurseYeah, I've never gotten paid double. Only time and a half after 40 hours. So if I worked 16 hours instead of 12 I might not get any overtime at all, as long as it only added up to 40 hours. I'd probably volunteer for 16 hour shifts all the time if it was double pay!!
- Nov 13, '12 by xoemmylouoxShoot I have never received double time either. No O/T unless over 40. And you better bet I would be a stick in their butt if I didn't get paid and I wasn't on the schedule for the next time change.
