    An "as needed" medication.

    Forgive, I pressed return before the definition. It is Latin, Pro re nata, which means according to need.

    So if you are employed as a prn, then they just call you when they need you?(sort of part-time)

    Yes. Find out what your requirements are. Find out what you are guaranteed. And if you accept a job, please show up. We need you.

    By the way, you will be called upon often, depending on where you are, of course. The nation is SO short on nurses.

    hi
    do anyone in ca know if your cna license has expired in 1995, and you didn't renew them, but now you want to go back into nursing, if you would have to take the cna all over again?

    Call them you may have to take another test and pay for your license. But I highly doubt you would have to retake the class...
