I have to say where I work we have a great system for monthly staff meetings. You have 2 different days to attend (example 1 on Monday 1 on Wednesday of that week) and you have a choice to either attend in person or if you are off that day or if you work at night we have a call in phone conference system. We are given a phone number with an access code and we can just call in. We do get paid whether we show up or call in. It works out great especially for us night nurses or for someone who has off during those days.
