    There might also be acute care NP roles that work 3 12 hour shifts. In general primary care, with the exception of Urgent Care, most NPs work five 8 hour days, although many practices also have four 10 hour shifts as an option.

    Agreed. Our inpatient neurology NPs do 3 12s.

    Most outpatient practices do not have 12 hour office hours. I've worked 4 9 hour shifts up until recently. Just switched to 5 8 hour shifts. Keep in mind if you decide to go the FNP route, that pretty much disqualifies you from an inpatient role.

    Retail health often has 3.5-4 day weeks.

    Some specialty clinics work off shifts. Our vascular NP works 4 10s with Wednesdays and weekends off.

    Both Urgent Care facilities I used to work for had NPs work 12 hour shifts. There was also the option of doing a 6 or 8 hour shift to help with busy times. We had several who did two 12's and one 6 or 8 hour shift as well. Only down side is that usually Urgent Cares are open 363 to 365 days a year so weekends are still a usual must.

    How about PsychNPs? Surely there must be practices that let them have unique 12 or 10 hour schedules ? I'm hoping for it. Haha.

    You'd be more likely to find 4 10s as many primary care clinics have extended evening hours but not quite enough to make 12 hour shifts.

    Neonatal NP's work 3, 12 hour shifts. Some even work 24 hour shifts.

    Yes, some outpatient psych clinics have four 10 hour shifts. Inpatient psych - I don't know.

    Many oncology clinics work 10-hr shifts. Several of the NPs where I work will work 3 days/week, but this is typically only after having worked there full-time for at least a year to have ample time to be fully trained.
