Generally speaking, nurses who are paid on an hourly basis should receive overtime pay. However, registered nurses who receive a salary of at least $455 per week and are registered with the appropriate State examining board may be ineligible for overtime pay under the learned professional exemption.

Having said this, it would be important to examine the specific facts of your situation before determining whether or not you or any of the other RN's are eligible for overtime pay.

To address your specific question, you can be required to clock in. The issue of whether you must also clock out is determined by whether you are eligible for overtime. If you are eligible for overtime pay, you should also be clocking out.
