I work full time 40/hrs at an acute care setting in a nursing home.
I applied at the same time to another facility, but they only had PRN.
I agreed to take both jobs in case I didn't like the other.
Here's the thing, at my full time job I have every other weekend off with wednesdays and fridays off. meaning I get off Friday if i work that weekend. I get wednesday off if im off that weekend.
I've picked up at least two days a month at the PRN job cuz they really needed nurses. Lately, my full time job has been kinda hectic and I keep saying no every time the PRN job needs a nurse. I mean how many times can I saw no before they fire me? How many hours does a PRN "have" to pick up? i handle 16hrs at the same facility but 8hrs at one job then 8hrs at another sounds insane. Plus, i'll be late. then it's not a full shift pay.
Maybe i'm not understanding what it means to be PRN? or im just not ready to handle two jobs. what do i do as PRN?
