No OT 12 hour shifts?

  1. I am trying to find a 12 hour shift template that will allow me to schedule my staff 24/7/365, with no built in overtime. I had seen an awesome schedule at some point which had no overtime and allowed the staff 7 days off in a row each month. However, I can't seem to find this schedule now.

    Does anybody have a template they use for 12 hour shifts and no overtime? Please share if you will

    i know this was posted awhile ago, but if you still have the template could you send me a copy? trying to get my floor to all 12 hour shifts is more difficult than i had thought.

    Straight 12's don't work for us.

    We do have a number of people working 2-8's & 2-12's per week.

    Or you could do 3-12, which would have them working 72 hours per pay period, still FT at our organization

    I would be interested in seeing your templates also.

    I don't know if you would be willing to give this a shot or not but give it a thought. When I worked on a telemetry unit, the nurse manager put out a blank schedule. She said "You know how many weekends you have to work." We filled in our own days, everybody was happy, and all the days got covered.
