12 hour shifts in public health?

  1. 0 I absolutely love having my 3 days on 4 days off schedule working on the floor, but I am looking to get into public health nursing. Is there a such thing as having 3 days on 4 days off in public health?

    Highly doubtful. Most PHN jobs are with municipal departments and thus M-F, 8-5. I was a PHN for 4 years and that was my schedule, and every PHN's schedule I knew.

    Unless you want to be OPS (part time), no benefits. You'll make a few dollars more an hour but work about three days a week.

    In some rural areas, Alaska for example, the PHNs travel to villages to provide their services.
    As one might imagine, it is hard to maintain "bankers hours" when practicing like that. I do believe that they are primarily M-F, 8-4:30 though, even here.

    Some of our PH nurses work 3 days. Prorated vaca, sick leave & same low hourly rate as full time.
