PRN Position

Hi guys,

So I currently work fulltime and go to school fulltime for my ADN. Its evening/weekend with class MW 5-8 and clinical Saturday all day. I did this last semester and was successful but my job is getting more intense and school will be harder.

I decided to start looking for PRN jobs and currently have a job offer in hand for a position as a PRN tech for Baycare (a highly ranked hospital system in tampa/st pete).

I hate leaving fulltime work as I wont be saving much money but I think the extra time would be valuable. Is anyone currently working PRN as a tech while undertaking school? How's it going? I'm in an ADN program so I was thinking that I would pretty much have a job lined up after I finished.

Just looking for some thoughts.

As a PRN worker in most places, you can sign up for as many shifts as you'd like. Simply schedule yourself fulltime (if that's what you need) around your class time. Just don't sign up if you know you have a major exam or something coming up. There is no need whatsoever for you to miss any income unless you want to, and you don't have to sit around and wait to be called in. You can do the calling if you're available. Of course, this is all dependent upon the conditions of the PRN position. But the flexibility is awesome! Usually the pay is, too, since this position carries no benefits.
