Hello everyone, I was just wondering how many hours NP work a week. Also, if you can, share some of your experiences with me.

Thank you!!

I work two days a week 8:20 - 5 and one morning until noon and am off the rest of the week. No nights, call, weekends or holidays. :)

The hours an NP works are going to depend on financial need, setting and specialty. If I wanted to work full-time and/or do shift work in a hospital I could definitely find the position.

I work 4 ten hour shifts, one evening til 8, and 1 Sat. a month. No on-call or mjor holidays. I'm at the clinic for 40 hopurs, and probably put in an additional 15-20 hours per week at home doing charts. It's a little more than I expected, but I'm doing it to get great experience so I can get a better job in about a year or so.

Yes, we can do charts at home. We're totally on EMR, so I just bring my laptop home. We're required to have all charts done within 24 hours of the visit. I started in Urgent Care, but switched to Primary Care 4 months ago. Urgent Care wasn't too hard-we're limited in what we can handle since we're an outpatient clinic, so anything moderately complex was sent to the ER.

In your opinion do you feel a private practice with several nurse practitioners has a need for a psych NP? I was thinking that might be a good addition to a regular clinic, especially a walk in type.
