I have 4 young children so until they are all in school I opted to become a PRN nurse. Friends told me it might be hard to get hours, but this has become quite the opposite. I could work 7 days a week if I wanted to, they are always calling me to work.. I am working 3-6 days a week when I really only wanted to work 1-2. I work what I am required to (the two weekend shifts per month) but then I always feel bad saying no to any of the other shifts I am asked to work.
I am not saying this is a bad thing or a good thing... the money is great. Just interested to see how often PRNs work at other places. Thanks!
