Using Multiple -prune directives in a find command

Can one use the -prune directive multiple times in a
find command to specify a list of directories not to descend?
It would be like
find . -name "*" -prune dir1 -prune dir2 -print
or whatever you wanted find to do, but that does not work or I
wouldn't be asking. Find appears to get confused and thinks dir1
is a command.
Thanks for your help.
