Hello, I currently work as a PCU nurse full time (36hr/week) at one facility and also work per diem as PCU float pool at a different facility in another nearby city (4 shifts a month). The two jobs complement each other in terms of scheduling (my per diem job is very flexible around my full time schedule). I am seeking a new full time job in order to switch from PCU to ICU. I intend on keeping my per diem job because not only does it pay well, I enjoy working there and it would also be closer to hospitals that I am looking to work at as an ICU nurse.
My real question is whether I should include my current per diem job on my resume along with my current full time job or should I just keep it off my resume? I ask this question because I am not sure if having a per diem job might be a negative thing and whether that creates the perception of a potential conflict with the job that I seek (which I never anticipate happening because I can work the per diem shifts around any full time schedule I get).
I recently interviewed for a transition program to ICU for experienced PCU nurses at a different hospital in the same system I currently work full time, so in essence it would have been a transfer. I did not get the position, and for that job I did NOT include my per diem job details because I did not think it was necessary. I do not know the real reasons behind their decisions not to take me into the transition program, and I doubt this was a reason but it made me want to just leave my current health system altogether.
BTW, I do not have an interest in pursuing ICU job at my per diem facility only because I dont want to live in the city where it is located. I enjoy just traveling there for per diem shifts despite that it is a good facility!
Sorry for the long post, I just wanted to give comprehensive info. Thanks for reading and for all replies!
