    Our NPs all do 4 tens in Austin (and I did that at my former institution also). 5 of us also cover the hospital service every 5th Sunday. There are 9 of us (7 outpatient and 2 inpatient). That one day off during the week really helps with the work-life balance. Hope that helps-

    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!
