    I am wondering if anyone knows what kind of work schedules may be available to hospital nurses...

    For example, I see a lot of posts about 2 shifts being offered - 7 am to 7 pm, and 7 pm to 7 am. Niether of those options are even close to being remotely appealing to me.

    How flexible and accomodating is the scheduling for R.N's? If or when I become an R.N., I would require a shift starting in the late morning or early afternoon and going on to sometime between late afternoon and midnight. Are such shifts commonly available to R.N.'s?

    I'm currently doing a clinical rotation at Banner Desert. The nurses there work all different kinds of shifts...Some of the shifts I heard about were 0700-1500, 1400-2200, 0600-1800, 1800-0600, 1100-2000...of course some of those shifts are 5/8's, 4/10's, 3/12's. I have a friend who works Baylor there, 16 hours on saturday, 8 on sunday and she gets paid for 32 hours.....there is a huge variety of shifts out there.....

    I second what Mattsmom said. I don't know about the med/surg floors but I have seen a variety of shifts in OR, PACU, and OB. Personally, I'm looking forward to 3-12s but it's good to know there are other options for folks who don't like 12 hour shifts.

    OR and PACU will require a lot of call.
    You're lucky to find these shifts, nothing like that really exists around here. Like I said, when they are offered, they are usually snagged up quickly. I worked Baylor for over 3 years as a tech, but it was still 12hrs shifts, just 2 of them a week! It was great! But in the 12 years I've been working shifts in the hospital, I've found these shifts hard to come by.

    So if I want to work at your hospital I can expect to make 27.50/hr if I work 3p-11p or 30.50/hr if I work 11-7??? Wow, if so that is pretty good!

    Housing costs are very high in the Phoenix area, though.
