Worked 7pm-7a and loved it and then the manager decided to place me on the 2p-2a shift cause we were so short. HATED IT! Like others have said, you're busy the moment you walk in the door and things have barely even begun to slow down (if at all...) when you leave. And in my ED, day shift was notorious for giving you random rooms throughout the ED so that the day shift nurses had their section of rooms altogether. For example, I'd have rooms 1, 12 and 15 (room 1 being on the hallway across from 12 and 15). They'd also wait to give you 3-4 pts all at once (most of the time pts were in rooms before you even got there and weren't worked up and nothing was done). I'm glad the 2-2 was just for once schedule cause I have to say I love my night shift crew. I also think that working night shift is a lot more manageable as far as lifestyle once you get the hang of things. Good luck!
