I got hired as a patient care tech and had my first day today. I am fortunate enough that I'm mostly doing this job for the experience-to feel more comfortable at clinicals and employment after nursing school
graduation. So ideally I want two shifts max a week. My question is how does the PRN scheduling work? On the schedule I saw quite a few shifts that had no tech coverage. Even if I don't sign up for those shifts, will I be called and moved to those shifts, and will I get in trouble for saying no? Also when looking at a potential schedule today, my manager said "You need to do some weekends". But this requirement was never mentioned in the interview, offer, or in writing. So I am not sure about that. I would ask my manager but I do not see her for a while and HR takes days to respond. Any advice is appreciated!
