Do any detroit area hospitals offer the weekend only option?

  1. Just wondering if anyone knew any hospitals that offer this. If so how does it work and is it offered to new grads? Thanks in advance.

    St. John Macomb does- It's called the Care Plus Option, it has several different variations depending how many holidays you want to work. Pay is significantly more. Check out their website.

    All of the DMC hospitals offer it. You get paid an additional $8.00 per hour and it's also called weekend cadre'. Good luck
