PRN Latin "pro re nata", which would mean that a person hired for a specific job, it will be necessary to "circumstances", and that he/she will not be subject to a standard or set hours of work. PRN jobs are needed. The employee is not guaranteed a program or set of hours, but rather, it works when it is needed. These employees typically work less than 20 hours per week (or the minimum number of hours to be considered "part time" in that position) and not receive the benefits of the company. PRN rates are higher than normal part-time and full time rates due to the lack of benefits and lack of a structured schedule and hours.
