Thank you for replying. Are you getting paid differentials for nights and weekends?
I don't get any differentials, personally- but i do work days. I did not hear about there being differentials for the night shift though. Our facility does though, have problems with some of the night shift nurses in some ways- several nurses I've known have had to go to work in the middle of the night to start an IV because the facility didn't schedule an RN for the shift (I'm not sure how that's legal, honestly), to find all the night shift nurses sitting around the nursing station playing cards... or taking turns taking naps on the job!.... while they fuss at the day shift if they haven't managed to process all the dr's. faxes and lab results that came pouring in an hour before the end of the day shift (during the 4pm med pass). I'm pretty sure there'd be an uproar from days if nights got paid more, unless they started doing more too.
I do get alright benefits I suppose- though I'm seriously contemplating skipping the insurance and just getting pay in lieu of benefits (they do that here) and putting money in a health savings account- since I don't really spend $150 a month on healthcare stuff, and that's what I"m losing through deductions.
