mahnken Posted February 12, 2014 Share Posted February 12, 2014 Hi guys!! I am a new grad and I have always wanted to do EM and fortunately, I was lucky enough to get a position with a group for PRN shifts to cover 3 hospitals. I start May 1st, needless to say, I'm very antsy and broke. I have no idea if I am going to have enough shifts to choose from to survive and I suppose I won't know until I start looking at schedules. In the meantime, I have been looking at locums positions. I interviewed with an ortho practice that needs someone FT immediately and they are no longer accepting locums (I didn't know this until I was sitting in the interview). I really loved their group and I could see myself there, but I have no exp in ortho and I'm not entirely sure yet if its for me. I was offered the ortho position today and its tempting to take it and pick up EM shifts as much as I can. However, 8-5 M-F with call 1 weekend/mo does not leave a lot of time. Also, the diff in pay is quite substantial. I would want to take as many EM shifts as possible if they're avail, but again, I don't know if there are going to be 10 shifts/mo avail or 2- and if the latter is the case I will be upset I didn't take the ortho position. Anybody have exp working PRN and mixing in another FT job?? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
