I am a pre-nursing student and have not worked in 6 years. I have been very spoiled when it comes to being with my family during the holidays and not having to worry about work schedules. I was wondering how the holiday schedule is determined in a hospital setting.
Do you get to pick your holidays to work?
Does the nurse manager pick them for you?
How many holiday's do you have to work in a year
Is there a limit?
When I was in the hospital last year, I asked my nurse, who worked part-time, about her holiday schedule and she said that she has to work one winter holiday and one summer holiday. She also gets to pick. I don't know if that is also true for full-time nurses. I am just curious. I have at least 4 years before I am an official RN but around this time of the year you tend to think about these things.
Any info would be great! Thanks all!
