I am expected to work 40 hours per week. However, when the work-load is slightly higher, I frequently find myself working 30-45 minutes extra several days per week. Sometimes I can work a few hours less, especially if I've had many of the longer days within the previous week.

I normally work 36 hours a week. But we are mandatory to work (2) 48 hour weeks every 6 weeks.

Would you consider asking this question?
How many hours each week, do you have on-call responsibilities?
How many hours are you mandated to work overtime each week?

Hopkins Happenings will consider this for a future question. Feel free to leave a comment about your experience with on-call duties and overtime.

Some nurses cannot leave on time related to the safety of their patients.
This also includes assuring the patients have a save discharge.
Some nurses are paid hourly; some are paid via set salary.
I happen to be paid salary.
Regardless of how a nurse is paid, the safety of the patient always comes first.
