A nurse-in-training needs to know:Whats Many Paid Time Off Days are Usually Given to First year nurses?
It is wise to not automatically assume that all healthcare facilities offer benefits such as paid time off (PTO), sick pay, holiday pay, health insurance, retirement plans, bonuses, or so forth. Not all hospitals and facilities feel the generous urge to bestow benefits upon their employees. I've worked at a facility that offered no paid time off, health insurance, retirement plan, or bonuses to any nurses that worked for them. My current workplace grants me about 8 hours per month of PTO, assuming I worked my regularly scheduled hours for that month.
Each facility will have different benefit packages. In general, my non-nursing jobs
have had superior benefits packages, while my nursing jobs have had mediocre benefits (if any).
BTW, nurses are educated
(not trained). 'Nurse in Training' may not sound too hot.
