    PRN means “as needed.” This type of work schedule is common in allied health and medical professions. Although working PRN shares similarities with working part time, PRN positions differ in that the schedule changes and a certain number of hours aren’t guaranteed per week.  Along with working as scheduled, employees who are hired into PRN positions may be expected to cover unexpected absences as needed by the hospital.  Since hospitals are a 24/7 operation, we are seeking candidates who are willing to work days, evenings, nights, weekends and/or holidays as needed.
