What does this mean

  1. 0 Please excuse my ignorance, but what does 0.8 FTE, and 0.6 FTE mean?
    I have seen those on job postings next to the number of hours per week and have no idea what they mean. Thanks

    fte basically means full time employee, so 1 fte would be a worker who works 80 hours per 2 weeks. .8fte or .9 fte would probably be used for nurses who work 72 hours per 2 weeks. .6 fte would probably be for a part time employee

    I was under the impression that FTE stands for 'full time equivalent'. So, it is a percentage of full time, with a 1.0 being full time.

    yes, FTE - full time equivalent:

    1.0 fte - 80 hours per pay period (every two weeks)
    0.9 fte - 72 hours per pay period (every two weeks - usually 3 12's).
    0.6 fte - 64 hours per pay period

    and so on down the line. What constitutes full time versus part-time is individual to the institution.
