Scheduled doubles

Nurses General Nursing


I am curious from other nurses about a work related question. Does anyone know if you work doubles that are scheduled (not over time pay) does it get paid the same as working two regular shifts? I was thinking about it, technically instead of working 8 hours and being there for 8.5 hours for lunch I'm there for 16.5 hours but get two lunches. Just heads up. This isn't mandatory I choose to work doubles to be home with my son more. But what I'm wondering is will I be losing 30 minutes every shift I work a double instead of two regular shifts? Or does your employer pay you for two shifts. I hope this makes sense.

This is something you will need to discuss and clarify with your employer as internal policies are not the same at all organizations.

Before you discuss it with your employer it might be helpful to clarify any existing laws with the labour board in your state. Also, do you have a union contract? Even if you stipulate to having certain rights waived it might still be illegal or in violation of your contract.
