Hey I am a new CNA and I was just wondering what Per Diem, Per Diem CSR, Pooling, and Staffing Pool are??
Per diem is like where they were saying above where you don't get any benefits, will be called off for low census first and are not guarenteed any hours, but you get more per hour. And per diem can be float pool, where they work all over. Staffing pool or staff float would get benefits, guarenteed hours, and maybe a couple bucks extra (for RN's) for floating around the hospital- but they are considered real staff and don't get paid as much per hour as the true per diem or registry people. It's complicated.
