I'm not following your math -- if you work 7a-7p Sat & Sun, and 3-11 on Fri, wouldn't that make 44 paid hours/week, not 46?
I worked a modified Baylor schedule years ago because I really wanted to specialize in child/adol psych and the hospital was ~2 hours from my home. I originally worked 3-11 on Friday, and 11a-11p Sat & Sun (evening shift was when they needed the coverage). The hospital was having such trouble covering days on the weekends that I eventually proposed that I work two doubles, 7a-11p on Sat & Sun. Like you, I needed the extra hours to qualify for benefits (esp. health insurance!) -- I worked 32 hours/week, got paid for 40 + full benefits.
It worked out great
-- the two days were long, but they were my only
work. I had Mon - Fri of every week completely free! I rented a room and stayed over in town on Sat nights, so I didn't have to drive all that way back and forth; just one round-trip each weekend. I used my free time during the week to complete a BSN (old diploma grad here
Esp. if you don't have family responsibilities on the weekends, take the money and run! :chuckle
