I am the head nurse at an overnight camp in NY.We have about 300 campers and 175 staff. Nursing staff consists of 4 FT Rns and one clinic coordinator-a secretarial type position. Currently, we are open from about 8 am til 9 pm, and on call after that. As RNs, we currently have 2 days off per week, and take call 2 nights a week. I have made the schedule such that we work 8-14 hours a day, depending on the circumstances. I have 2 RNs on at all times.
I am very curious to find out how you run your health center. They are talking about decreasing our days off to only one next year. I want to find out what other camps do. I am already close to burned out, I'm not sure I can handle 6 days a week.
