Hello, I currently work as a PCU nurse full time (36hr/week) at one facility and also work per diem as PCU float pool at a different facility in another nearby city (4 shifts a month). The two jobs complement each other in terms of scheduling (my per diem job is very flexible around my full time schedule).  I am seeking a new full time job in order to switch from PCU to ICU. I intend on keeping my per diem job because not only does it pay well, I enjoy working there and it would also be closer to hospitals that I am looking to work at as an ICU nurse. 

My real question is whether I should include my current per diem job on my resume along with my current full time job or should I just keep it off my resume? I ask this question because I am not sure if having a per diem job might be a negative thing and whether that creates the perception of a potential conflict with the job that I seek (which I never anticipate happening because I can work the per diem shifts around any full time schedule I get).

I recently interviewed for a transition program to ICU for experienced PCU nurses at a different hospital in the same system I currently work full time, so in essence it would have been a transfer. I did not get the position, and for that job I did NOT include my per diem job details because I did not think it was necessary. I do not know the real reasons behind their decisions not to take me into the transition program, and I doubt this was a reason but it made me want to just leave my current health system altogether. 

BTW, I do not have an interest in pursuing ICU job at my per diem facility only because I dont want to live in the city where it is located. I enjoy just traveling there for per diem shifts despite that it is a good facility!

Sorry for the long post, I just wanted to give comprehensive info. Thanks for reading and for all replies!

Yes, definitely put in on your resume. It's valid, recent experience. You won't need to indicate that the job is per diem on your resume. However, you will need to list this job on your application, and you might have to list your per diem status there. An interviewer may ask about the job during the interview.  That would be a good time to ask about conflict of interest.

This was in line with what I’ve been thinking, I just needed another person to validate it. Thank you!
