    Winter break is great! Though as PhD students you still need to work.

    Duke uses a paid holiday system called Discretionary Days, which includes the usual national holidays. If you needed to work on a given holiday you can apply the time off to a different date. Earned vacation days roll over each year, there is a maximum but it's quite large. You can stockpile a maximum of 20 days' worth of vacation time with up to 4 years' service; max 30 days from 4-9 years service; and max 40 days if at Duke >9 years.

    The paid time off and sick leave rolls over every years so it ends up accumulating very quickly. I was able to get all 12 weeks paid for maternity leave using my vacation and sick leave.

    I received generous amounts of vacation and sick time. And Duke has a program that allows employees to share unused sick time with others who need it.

    You get three weeks. It's pretty good. They aren't too strict with giving time off either. Ask and you will receive.

    PTO comes out to about 6 weeks/year for a full-time nurse. This PTO includes vacation days, sick days, and getting called off if the unit census is too low.
