    I have been working 10 hours Monday through Thursday for about 14 years.  I am here to finish infusions that run late and to get paperwork done after the clinic closes.  Our inpatient NP who was hired last year works a regular 8 hour day M-F.  The hospital will no longer hire any body for 10 hour days.

    Hi All,
      I have asked to ascertain how many other pedi hem/onc programs have NPs on 4 days x 10 hr schedules.  We are lobbying for such a schedule and was hoping I could get some feedback on how other NPs are scheduled.  We currently are a small institution with 2 full time NPs that cover inpatient and outpatient.

    Thank you!
