I really would appreciate it if you can help me work through this issue...
I'm a new grad (BSN) and started my job search
. My hospital of FIRST choice possibly offered me a position in the ER DAY shift. I got really excited because I didnt want to work MedSurg. I know it will be very difficult, however I'm motivated and ambitious to give it all I got! ;-)
However, this job is not a full time job. The recruiter told me its part time (11A-7:30 P twice a week) and then I will have the opportunity to fill in per diem. In this scenario then I would be available to work per diem 1-2x a week, thus actually working full time hours.
Aside from discussing details of orientation and training, my concern is BENEFITS. Other than medical insurance which I may be able to purchase on my own, how does it work with sick/holiday/vacation days, tuition reimbursement etc. Because I work part time do I lose all this? What other issues will I bump into if I work part time and per diem? Wht else should I be asking the manager at my interview?
I would really appreciate all your advice as I'm pretty confused at the moment... Thanks!
