I am a new LPN grad as of a couple weeks ago & not working yet. I plan on looking for a job when I pass my boards which I take in a July. I have a couple of friends that work in different nursing homes as CNAs & said that their facilities are hiring per diem. What exactly is per diem?What is the pay like?Will I get hours?Do i get the crappy shifts? Do I pick any shift I want?Is it good for an new LPN?Do you think I need more experience? Anything you can tell me about it would be great!I know you dont get health insurance which is not a problem because my husband gets it for us. I thought it could be a good thing to get my foot in the door especially at this one particular facilty I would like to work at.Any advice or info would be great, thanks!
