Re: 12-hour shifts in a row...

Stumbled in from nurses_notes I see. Thanks for dropping by and commenting! I used to work a 4 and 3 schedule over two weeks, but I didn't work the shifts all in a row like you do. Ugh. However, I know you like the days off in a row like that!

I went to a weekend schedule so I work every Friday and Saturday and every other Tuesday. So, I work 60 hours in two weeks now, but get paid for 80 because it's weekends. I plan to retire from this job! ;-) I work in the Trauma ICU of this Level I Trauma Center so I receive patients from the ER (we call it the ED for Emergency Department) all the time. I don't want your job!

Personally, I prefer the 12-hour shifts because I like working fewer days. I also work nights because I am a natural night owl. I hate mornings and feel best in the evening and at night.

Thanks again for visiting and commenting, Denise. It is nice to meet you!
