I'm looking into applying for PRN positions and when researching a hospitals pay rates using sources like Indeed and Glassdoor, you can get a good idea of the full-time w/ benefits hourly rate which in my area averages $25 - $32 an hour for my level of experience. However, I find it nearly impossible to find out what the PRN rate is. Rarely does a job listing post the rates. If I applied and interviewed to all of the PRN positions in my area just to find out what the hourly rate is, it would literally take me a FEW DAYS just in the application process alone. I'd hate to spend hours applying only to find out the hourly rate is less than satisfactory.
How have you guys found out what hourly PRN/float rate a hospital pays? That's why I'm thinking of contacting HR to find out directly from the source, but will only do so if it's acceptable. What do you guys think?
