PRN vs Full Time

  1. 0
    Ok I have a situation I found myself in. I was offered a full time position as a care coordinator at a nearby hospital. It's straight days 7-330. Pay is 29.50. No nights weekends or holidays. Sitting at a desk and no patient care. The other position I am interested in is through a staffing agency that is operated through the hospital system. It's their own staffing agency. Pay starts at 37.60 an hour and goes to 41 an hour if you work at least 56 hours in 2 weeks. You can make your own schedule and float throughout the whole system at all ED's. You get retirement, but no medical/dental (which isn't a big deal. I can get my own. The only thing with the PRN is that you CAN be canceled. However people that I know that do it said they've never been canceled.
    Taking opinions!!!

    The training for prn would fall during my full time hours. I'm thinking of taking full time nd doing the prn later when I can take time off for orientation etc

    How to you adapt to new situations and new people?
    If you work PRN in different places, you will have to learn the quirks and differences between different working environments and be willing to be flexible.
    A floating PRN is usually something of an outsider to the regular staff. Do you like a set of regular colleagues, or do you like seeing lots of new faces?

    Take the FT gig for now, you can always pick up PRN later...

    If it were me, I would still try to find a way to do both, for more than one reason. But that is my situation. If you can't find a reason to choose one over the other, there is always the coin toss!
