    At our hospital we work a minimum of 84 hours in two weeks which is our "scheduled" hours...not counting when we get called in early or stay late to help out the oncoming/offgoing shift. Yeah, we are paid hourly.

    Five 12 hour shifts every 2 weeks, the minimum for health insurance & other benefits.
    Some extra when it is dangerously short staffed and some teaching too.

    I work 36hr/wk. I think most staff nurses get paid hourly. If I work one 4 shift week in a 4wk schedule, I am considered full-time, but since I don't usually, I'm 90%. I will sometimes work an extra shift, or half shift (we're allowed to split a shift w/someone else), and I will stay over 4hrs.
    We get paid for coming in for some meetings, or to work on a project. I'm on a hospital comittee, the unit pays me for that, too.

    I am a floor RN and work a scheduled 40 hour week and am paid hourly. This does not include mandatory overtime. Last month I worked 56 hours one week. I work second shift so I get a 5% shift differential and a 5% weekend differential. Plus I often get mandated "on-call" after my regularly scheduled shift for 4 to 8 hours and get paid for that too but at a much lesser rate of pay than my base wage.
