36-44, depending on how my shifts go. Mandatory overtime doesn't exist on my unit. Have to take 2 4-hour blocks of call once a month, but usually don't get called in. If I work over the 36 scheduled hours, it's because my shift has been nuts or we've had a call out and I'm covering. I guess I have it pretty good.

Well lets see, I am scheduled 40 hours a week. Since the hospital at which I am employed has mandatory overtime I can work up to 24 extra hours a week. Two months ago I worked 40 hours in 3 days. Needless to say, I don't volunteer to work OT and refuse to come in on my day off.

i like to work overtime so it depends on our staffing if i can i work either 5 or 6 12 hr shifts per week but our unit tries every way possible to avoid overtime. it's like once i get on a roll i can work almost every day but if i get a couple of days off i want to stay off.
