I know this is a dumb question, but what is a PRN? I think I might know, but I've never heard of it.

it means "as needed"...if you work prn, they call when they need you. You get paid a lot more. Or you can work thru an agency and get big bucks. But you risk not getting to work also. It's good when you get to work, but you can't count on it.

I don't think they hire LPN's there. I am an LPN and I think a few years ago that they laid all them off and don't hire them anymore. Laurel Heights nursing home pays LPNs good, I hear

nah, they have said that as long as I have been a nurse which is a long time. Nursing homes and doctor's office couldn't afford to pay RN's. I work in a busy hospital and they hire LPN's all the time. And you're right, I should go back and get my RN, because we do the same things as RNs and get paid less. Maybe one day, when I don't have to work full time, I'll go back.

in order to work PRN or on an as needed basis you have to have experience. some places require 6 months others a year. plus no benefits just an increase in pay on the hour.

BRMC DID let go all their LPN's. It was decided that nurse aides could do most of what they do, and the RN's mostlyt handle only the stuff their license allows that the aides can't. Blood work, passing pills, paperwork, etc.

PRN's don't qualify for any benefits...that's why their salary is so high, nothing is deducted for insurance/retirement/etc. BRMC rarely deals with PRN's, that's mostly a Marymount deal.

At BRMC there's a yearly evaluation of all employees, if you do a good job you get an additional 3% yearly. My wife (an RN) has worked there more than 10 years and has received every increase...she's also received many of their "cost of living" raises they throw out on occasion. She also gets a 10% salary increase because of the shift she works.
She makes around $28 dollars per hour.

I work PRN and I make 33.50 and hour. But when you work PRN, you are not guaranteed to work. You are also the first person put on call if the census is low or there are too many scheduled.

Does it effect your pay much having your BS rather than AS?

Not usually. Some hospitals will pay an extra 50 cents or so on the hour if anything. The only significant difference is if your in management instead of just being a staff nurse.

LPNs are qualified to do way more than a CNA...there is no comparison...There are very few restrictions now between an LPN and RN since they have changed the regulations in the past couple years. I'm an LPN and I make around 19.50 and hour with my shift differential and that's regular salary not PRN
