Paying PT Nurses

I am new to the healthcare industry so please bear with me. (And it is too early in the morning for my brain) We operate clinics that are open M-5. I have RNs how work less than 40 hours, i.e. 32 hours, 24 hours, etc. Since they are classified as exempt employees do you just prorate their salary to the amount of hours worked? For example if you would pay $50,000 for a 40 hours nurse, you would pay $40,000 for a RN who worked 32 hours (.80)

Also, I have found that these RN have been clocking in as if they are hourly employees. While I understand that for PRN nurse, this is acceptable - would it not violate their exempt status for the PT RNs by having them clock in and out as if they were hourly?

Bottom line: how do you handle PT RNs in a clinic that operates M-5 open from 7am to 6pm. I feel I am over-analyzing this!
