I love vacations. I couldn't find any polls on this and was curious:
How many weeks of vacation do you get per year?
Include: Vacation, PTO, personal days, guaranteed off holidays.
If you work 3 12s an get 6 days off, that is 2 weeks.
Do NOT include: Sick time, CME days, holidays that are not guaranteed off.
ONLY answer if a FULL TIME RN. (LPN, CNA, NP, etc feel free to start a poll, I'd be curious)
Is your workplace permissive about vacations?
Do they force you to use vacation days when you are called off d/t low census in order to keep FT status and bennies?
Who gets the prime dates? Is there a fixed seniority system? First come first served? Whoever the manager likes most?
How far ahead do you have to ask for vacation?
Can you bank it until next year? Or is use-it or lose-it?
13 days per year annual leave, 1 day per month sick leave, 1 day per quarter for personal time (29 days total) in addition we get paid holidays. They are very permissive about taking time off. It's heaven!
My last, job, though, yeesh, it was awful. I was part time (64 hours per pay period) and I earned 1 day per month, period. Also, it was prorated, so if you were out a week with the flu, you earned no sick time for that week. And it did no good to have time, you could never schedule time off. Manager from Hell would say, "I'll see what I can do." which is nice, but doesn't work if you are trying to make reservations. We had gotten to where we would ask way ahead of time, make our reservations, and if she didn't grant the request we'd just call in.
