I will be applying to nursing positions soon, and while researching positions, I've been noticing "Flex" and "Per Diem." I am interested in Full time; however, I am interested in knowing what the pros and cons are about applying for "Flex" or "Per Diem" positions.

Which, out of all, would allow me to learn most effectively?

Thank you in advance!

As a new nurse you need full time orientation to teach you how to be a nurse on that unit. Per diem positions are for experienced nurses that can fully function from day one on the job.

Thank you! I also remember hearing that Flex positions are not offered to New Grad RN's at the previous hospital I had clinical rotations at. Is this true for most hospitals?
