    Our facility is a teaching hospital for Baylor. I'm not sure if this is the same as the Baylor program. Our surgical residents work 24on, 24off for a month. The surgical chief works the same, except for 3 months. The Baylor medicine docs work 12 on 12 off and alternate weekends. The attendings work differently on some schedule that seems to change week to week. It is a lot harder on the surgical docs. They can barely keep their eyes open. At the end of their shifts, they must stay until everone in their area (EC) has a disposition. It is hard on them, but it sure helps move people faster.

    Not sure if this what you were asking, but let me know.

    Talking about nurses working either 7-3 3-11 or 11-7 Monday through Friday and another group of nurses working 7a-7p Sat and Sun and 7p-7a Sat and Sun....Weekend group get full benefits and gets paid for 36 to 40 hours.

    I have some familiarity with the Baylor weekend option or Baylor Plan as it's also known. Specificaly, what are your questions? I used to work for Baylor...and have also worked at hospitals where they do the 7 on and 7 off plans as well.

    I just took a Baylor... well it is called "weekend option". 6a - 6p every Sat and Sun. Should work out great for school.

    You're right...this type of schedule goes very well with school. As an undergrad, this was the only way I could meet the obligations for school(without it taking 15 million years) and fill the financial need to work full time. Best of luck to you! ;-)

    I've been working 7p-7a every sat and sun sicne January. I get paid 36 hours for it. At my facility they took out weekend and shift diff away from us if we work the weekend option. So I did lose some money going to weekends, but it was great this summer while the kids were on break.

    can anyone tell how much they pay for Baylor program approximately in New Jersey ? Because some of them dont want to pay for 36 hr or 40hr when you work two shifts 12hr. In one place they offered to pay $33 for 30 hr, when you actually work 24 hr. I heard that Baylor program consist of base salary plus $12 /hr. is it true? Someone, please ?

    I work at downtown Baylor, well in nursing management books it called Baylor Plan, But systemwide at Baylor its called TDA(Two Day Alternative) schedule wherein you will only work for saturday and sunday and get paid as full time same benefits and same salary of those who work on weekdays or nights. Some managers permit just friday and saturday, depends with the staffing need of the floor.

    You are not required to work during the week anymore but you can pick up time if you want. Great for parents who has kids, and nurses or techs who are in school, and for those who like to pick up another P/T or regular job during the week.

    The downside is you got no life. Parties, concerts, church, superbowl, fun, etc happen on weekends. PTO sucks too because you only work 2 days and that would only give you 4hrs of PTO per paycheck but if you accumulate 24hrs of PTO thats like 2 weeks vacation already.

    This is how they compute our pay...

    Your regular pay + weekend differential + TDA differential = your salary
    *shift differentials not yet included.

    Do all Baylor programs include full benefits? Are there any catches? This would be ideal for me (especially since I wouldn't have to worry about 1 on, 1 off, 1 on etc. messing up my sleep pattern) but I feel like it's almost TOO good to be true. I would prefer weekends by far to weekdays.

    Do all areas of nursing usually apply (like NICU)?

    I'd appreciate any help regarding this! Thanks in advance!

    depends on the facility....some facilities offer it, some do not, and in the facilities that do offer, some depts do, some don't. It all boils down to budgeting. And many times, the spots are coveted and much competed for
