Per Diem hours in Las Vegas

  1. Nurses who work per diem here in Nevada, how much per week do you do? Do you ever find yourselves doing "too much" in a week, or is it manageable?

    I don't think you could actually get that many hours at UMC. Many of the staff nurses at UMC choose to work 1 or 2 days overtime each week. Furthermore, UMC is usually the one hospital in the Las Vegas/Henderson area that has the fewest amount of openings for RN's. When an RN gets a job at UMC, they usually stay because the benefits and retirement are absolutely amazing -- none of the other hospitals (or any business for that matter) in the area come close to it.

    Desert - are you looking for per diem RN or CNA work?

    Thanks guys, no I was just wanting to hear how much per diem work people out here actually do. I am not looking (yet) it was just merely out of curiosity to see what people are working.
