PACU RN core positions consist of mandatory scheduled call. The amount of call required varies each month due to variances in staffing numbers.

The person at the top of the list gets first pick of the call shifts, but in turn has more call shifts. The person at the bottom of the list may have less call shifts, however the options are limited. Each month, the list continues to rotate and the staff members move from top to bottom.
