Well, I took some time out from work. Now I think I'm ready to get back on the saddle. I have had such a hard summer with a few blessings. I got accepted into nursing school. I'll be starting next year. And I also got a job working in long term care for Chester county. I chose casual part time so I won't stress myself too much. Especially having done private duty most of my life, going back to a nursing home will be DIFFERENT, and wel all know is more stressful but the pay is pretty good, benefits are great, not to mention the differential rate, and I really want this to be a job that I stay at since when I graduate from school, the transition will be easier. I've always enjoyed 11-7 so I chose that shift. BUT I'm a little nervous with it all. I'm hoping I'll do well. I guess I want to hear something good! Lol. Sooo how are you liking 11-7am shifts?? Are you thinking of changing shifts soon?? What bothers you the most if any....
I don't work in a nursing home, but I can tell you about nights at the hospital.
Most nights we have at least 1 patient who gets confused when the sun goes down.
Most night shifts- at least 3/4 of your people may sleep at least a few hours!
