Hours?

I'm sure this varies but generally speaking, what hours do nurses in nursing homes work? I just want an idea of what the schedule might be like. Thanks.

Since nurses are on the schedule 24 hours per day, it varies. The nursing homes I've been to, the RNs work 7-7 and 7-7.

Nursing homes may vary a little bit, but usually I see 1st shift 6am-2pm or 7am-3pm 2nd shift 2pm-10pm or 3pm-11pm 3rd shift 10pm-6am or 11pm-7am Hope that helps

We have 8 hours shifts and ours sun 7a to 3p, 3p to 11p and so on. I worked day shift at another home and my ours there were 6 am to 2:30 (a little TOO early for me) Full time staff work every other weekend and major holiday. The big three (T-giving,Xmas,New Years) also rotate.

I've worked at 2 and they both were 12 hour shilfts 6-6:30 and 6:45-7:15.

I actually just got hired at a nursing home for Monday through Friday 3pm-9p and a 12hr on call shift every 5th weekend. Weird, huh?

Will you be getting any benefits, specifically health insurance? I'm thinking NOT?

i work 645a-315p, 2nd shift is 245p-1115p, 3rd is 1045-715a. if you are FT or PT you must work alternating weekends. my schedule personally is friday before my weekend on i am off and off the monday after my weekend on. per diem is one weekend per month.
