    I am also a little confused about this process when being hired as a New Grad. I applied for the night shift, I know my classes won't be during the night (I think classes last 2 weeks) but is orientation held during the job shift (for me at night)?
    I was hired for night shift and have 8 weeks of training on days and 4 weeks of training on nights, and then I'll be on my own on night shift. I think it's been great for me to get time training on days since the flow is different and I'll have a more complete picture of the 24 hour day for the unit.

    I am on a trauma unit with lots of wound care and post surg patients. I was there as a fourth year nursing student and they are only giving me 6, 12 hour shifts. Today was my first day and I was so overwhelmed!!!
