there are all types of scheduling. the 12 hr, 8hr, monday through friday 8 hrs and 12s on the weekend and have the following week off. why not get nurses that are already trained back on the job. maybe you could suggest to your facilities that say a mom who is a nurse has kids that are now in school, or even those on a half day. have them come in for 4 or 6 hour shifts. they could pick up the slack, if they have maintained their licenses in good standing. they could be a prn and do the pushes for lpns, do admissions as well as give discharge instructions. the catches would be that she would have enough time to reach her children in order to pick them up from school. that way within an hour of leaving she can assist with an admission but not get tied up doing the entire thing, she could start ivs and such. see if your facilities might try it. i know that there are many nurses out there that would love to work but left to have a family and now the nest is empty for a while each day. besides the extra cash may help with the families economy and the facility has nurses that are already trained. these nurses may also pick up the slack when regular staff go on vacation. there are all kinds of uses for these nurses. if someone needs a sitter than instead of taking away from floor staff have one of these nurses. also, i got the idea from one of the comercials about grandparents having the bonding with new infants particularly those who have been premature or going through drug withdrawal. so whatcha think guys? due u thinc it kan werk?
