Quick Tip to help calculate practice hours:
Full time - calculate based on number of shifts x number of hours of the shift x 12 months (example: 20 shifts per month x 8 hrs x 12 = 1920 hrs).
Part time & Casual - calculate based on shift length and number of shifts in your part time position per month x 12 months OR number of casual shifts in a month x 12 months.
Do not include sick/vacation or leaves of any time. Hours are required to maintain the mandatory clinical competency hour requirement as legislated.
