nursing.advanceweb.com 2018 Nursing Salary Guide Elite Learning 7 almost perfectly—50.07% of nurses reported working overtime, while 49.93% said they did not. Respondents were given three options to respond to the question “Is working overtime mandated by your employer?” - Yes, it is required, No, I volunteer, Not applicable (For the sake of clarity, the second response means the nurse is voluntarily working overtime and being paid, not volunteering in the literal sense.) Overtime Mandates By State: Hawaii was by far the most common state to see overtime mandated, with almost 27% of Hawaiian nurses reporting. Idaho was next at 20.7%. Out of our top-10 states for most responses, Michigan was the state where nurses can expect to work mandated overtime (20.64%). In total, 12.4% of nurses reported overtime mandates, while the remaining responses were fairly even between “not applicable” and “work overtime voluntarily” (43.2% not applicable, 44.4% work overtime voluntarily.) It is challenging to draw a definitive conclusion about states or regions—Idaho and Hawaii had the highest rates of overtime mandated, but their regions were relatively low on the whole. Statistically, you’re most likely to be forced to work overtime in the Midwest (14.68%) and least likely in the Northwest (10.65%). But the tight range of those numbers indicate this is more likely a phenomenon that changes by facility—not by area of residence. Overtime By Work Setting Not surprisingly, people working in more intense settings (corrections, emergency, operating/recovery, surgery) were most likely to be asked or mandated to work overtime where schools and government related work settings had little required overtime. The Pharmaceutical setting had almost no overtime requirements by comparison where 86.67% of respondents indicated overtime was not applicable. Overtime by Job title Of all titles, those who identified as military nurses (47% ) were statisti- cally most likely to have mandated overtime hours while Charge Nurses (68% ), were most likely to work more overtime by choice or upon request.
