Hours are horrible. Hired in for 40 hours a week and now stuck working 12+ hours a day because they won't hire more people

Acute RN job means you are a slave to the company. No breaks. No lunch. Work all day and then are on call all night. Get called in and it’s STRAIGHT time! You are nothing but a warm body with a nursing license so they can bill for treatment. Management gets bonuses for coming in under budget ie under staffing. But they always get a lunch!

Very long hours. Sometimes (usually) 14-16 hour days. Some days are not that long. Your off every other Saturday and closed on sundays.

Horrible. Not sure why full time employees at cannot get their hours. Hours given to travel nurses or techs who don’t stay the entire shift(s),creating more work for those in the clinic. Meanwhile management too busy taking numerous “lunch breaks” or cupcake breaks to care.The staff as well as those traveling to work at the clinic do not understand the need for two charge nurses when clearly if you can take all these “lunch breaks” you don’t need two charge nurses.

The working hours were fine with me. I had a choice of 8:30am to 5pm or 8am to 4:30pm. We worked hard but when I needed time off, i.e., dentist appointment it was not a problem. I met very nice people there.
