You may be able to find that in an ambulatory surgery setting, but highly unlikely to find in an acute cate setting. Even with my facility staffing 24/7, there are still call requirements from when the proverbial brown substance hits the fan. The call team isn’t utilized to come in emergently very often; most of it is staying until the case in your room finishes or another room finishes with evening/night shift staff to relieve.

As far as I know, my hospital in NYC doesn’t require on call. I have started orientation yet, due to covid orientation date was pushed back two months. If I find out more info on that I’ll let you know

I started out in main OR. it is good for basic. surgery centers have no nights or calls or weekends. Some stand alone surgery centers require you to do pre-op, intra-op, and PACU. I'm at an ASC as part of a big teaching hospital and it's great, no nights, calls, or weekends.
Perhaps a travel nursing job won't require you to take calls.

Call is part of life in the OR, unless you work in a surgery/procedure center which doesn't operate 24/7. Even that though, there are often call requirements (ex. the person to stay late when a room doesn't finish on time). As others have mentioned, some travel assignments may guarantee no call, others require call. Depends on where you go and what you do.

Sorry you will have to take the advice of others and just do ambulatory/surgery centers (and even they sometimes have to do urgent/emergent cases)...the only other option I have heard of is if you have done a certain amount of years (25 years or more) or of a certain age (65 and up)
But if you work in an acute setting there will be call/lates...at my hospital OR we must take lates during PeriOp 101 orientation...we are known as 4th and 5th lates so we don't always stay the full four hours after our 8 hours shift...but once off orientation we are expected to take 1st, 2nd, 3rd lates and be on call for holidays/weekends/and must be able to know how to work nights

Hi NscorpioredBsn, lates don’t bother me at all. It’s that I physically can’t get to my job in 30 minutes- I’m 45-60 minutes away.
and unfortunately, I’ve got 10 years to go for the other conditions
thanks for your input
