I was wondering about prn, per deim, and pool nurses and where they are required to work in their hospital.
I've heard of nurses who only work in ONE DEPARTMENT. For instance, they are only called to work when they are needed on the Outpatient Surgery unit, or the Orthopedic floor, etc.
I've heard of some who must agree to work WITHIN A DIVISION. For instance, their hospital's Maternal Child Division which would include L&D, Well Baby Nursery, Post-Partum, Ante-Partum, Women's Med/Surg, Pediatrics and NICU, and they don't have a choice in where they will be assigned.
I've also heard of some who must be willing to work in ANY AREA OF THE HOSPITAL but this seems to be in the smaller hospitals.
If you choose OTHER, please tell us how it works for your facility.
By the way, if you are a nurse doing this type of work, what are the things you do and don't enjoy about your experience.
