PRN nurses are part-time employees of a hospital or other medical facility who are called in to work shifts as needed. PRN nurses may be needed under a variety of circumstances, including when regularly scheduled nurses call in sick, take a vacation or go on maternity leave. PRN nurses aren’t just called in for emergencies, however, and many enjoy semi-regular hours. Because hospitals frequently have a shortage of nurses, PRN nurses can usually choose from a variety of open nursing shifts each week.
Depending on the facility, nurse PRN jobs may have certain requirements. For instance, a PRN nurse may be able to choose from open shifts, but must work at least 3 days a month for that facility, 2 of which must be night or weekend shifts. They can also turn down work, as long as they meet the requirements of the facility.
Nurse PRNs generally get paid more per hour than full-time nurses; however, there are some downfalls to working PRN. Typically, nurse PRN jobs do not offer sick pay, vacation time, benefits or disability. For some nurses, this is not a problem, as they can go under their spouse’s insurance. Others may want to consider paying for their own insurance.
