Agency while in school

  1. How hard is it to get 8 shifts a month while you are in nurse practitioner school? Location would be Florida and class clinical would be Monday to Thursday. Able to pick up shifts Friday Saturday and Sunday. I'm only asking because 8 shifts would pay enough for me to survive.

    Honestly it depends on a variety of things. What state you're in, your specialty, how many facilities in your area utilize agency, what are their staffing needs, your budget, savings, etc. And shifts are not guaranteed in agency nursing and you can always be cancelled. I'd do some research on how agency nurses fare in your area if you can. A quick way to get started is to read reviews for agencies located in your area and see what people have to say.
