    Night shift weekends are Fri/Sat
    Day shift weekends are Sat/Sun

    Differentials are $5/hr for w/e and $5/hr for nights (so a weekend night shift differential is $10/hr).

    Every other weekend is the official rule, but that doesn't get followed too closely - some nurses do three weekends together and then take the next three off, some nurses get PRN nurses to work for them on the weekends (or split a shift with them), some night shift nurses work every friday night and no Saturday nights - the variations are almost endless. It isn't always "exactly fair", but most everyone seems happy with it.
