Other than hospital or inpatient, where else can I find an FNP job that has the 3-12 hour shift schedule? I don't mind working every other weekends. Thanks

That's going to be very hard to find.  That is not the nature of primary care or outpatient care.  The best you're going to get is 4-10s.  Why on earth did you become an FNP if you don't want to work normal FNP hours?

Very, very few minute clinics or urgent care clinics will hire a new grad NP.  Almost all require a minimum of 1 year, most require a minimum of 2 years experience.

Hey OP, 

 

I too have no desire to work Monday through Friday. Corrections, Urgent Cares and even some school districts do a few days per week.

CVS hires them like crazy and they are huge.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. Yeah, I think corrections is a great idea. Thanks!

The reason CVS, at least in California, does not hire new grads is because the NP usually works alone in these Minute Clinics.  I find the thought of a new grad in such a role to be truly alarming and a very irresponsible hire.  A new grad NP would be OK in an Urgent Care where other providers are present.  

Aside from care quality, a new grad that puts themself in this position is just asking for a boatload of stress and is also creating a huge liability for themselves (working as sole provider in an UC)

In Michigan, new grad FNPs are hired in UC all the time straight from school with 3 months orientation. It is "dependent" state, so M.D. provider must be there on regular basis to sign charts. Many students, knowing that their chances to get first job in UC are pretty high, try to arrange as much clinical time as possible in this enviroinment.
