    We are a medium size institution (6 – MD’s, 7 NP/PA’s) and we do self scheduling and are allowed to do 4 – 10 hrs as long as everything is covered. So, we have many different schedules. We have areas that we primarily cover but can cross cover. We cover in-patient as well as outpatient but do not cover weekends, holidays or take call.

    1 – PA works 5 – 8’s and covers neuro-onc
    1 – NP works 4 – 10’s and covers late effects
    1 – NP works 5 – 8’s and covers hematology
    1 – NP that works 3 – 10’s and primarily covers clinic but can also cross cover inpatient if needed (she is 3/4 time)
    2 – NP’s that were doing 4 – 10’s and covering in-patient and out-patient (myself and 1 other NP). We just made sure we didn’t have the same day off or if we absolutely had to that we had 1 of the other NP’s available to cover.
    1 – NP was working 2 – 14’s and 1 – 12 and covering wherever she was needed.

    We have a small institution with 3 MD’s one PA & 1 NP (looking for a 2nd NP). Everyone works the same schedule; 5-8 hour days with one week per month on call and responsible for inpatient. Mon-Sun.

    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!
    Jen Costa, CPNP
