Just wondering if, in California, there are any regulations governing how many hours an RN can be required to stay overtime? Can your employer make you stay 24 hours? or more? And if yes, are there any mandated break time? Just wondering

Thanks so much for your reply. I have tried to find a specific regulation on the internet, but I guess Im a hopeless searcher. Would you happen to have an idea on where to find some document that actually spells these regs out?
I just found what I wanted, if anyone is interested it's on the California Department of Industrial Relations website http://www.dir.ca.gov
and has quite a few versions. The part concerning maximum overtime is Section 3, (B) (9) .Its called the Industrial Welfare Commission Order (varies by date) Regulating Wages, Hours and Working Conditions in the Public Houskeeping Industry (I always knew nurses had to be housekeepers too!!)
