    I know that night shift hours are basically 7 PM to 730 AM if you have a twelve hour shift or 11 PM to 730 AM if you work an eight hour shift. I don't think there are any other variations of night shift hours at this time.

    Hope that helps!

    In the area where I live, 12-hour night shifts are from 7pm to 7am. Some facilities schedule the night shift to work from 6pm to 6am.

    8-hour night shifts are from 11pm to 7am in most places. In the city where I reside, most of the facilities have adopted a 10pm to 6am night shift schedule.

    Eight hour night shifts can run 10-6, 11-7, or 12-8. 12 hours are normally 7-7 or 6-6. If you are doing homecare, there can be variations agreed upon by the patient and the nurse(s). Some facilities incorporate the half hour overlap, but many do not.

    Our 11-7 shift is technically 10:45-7:15 to allow time for report and turnover between the two shifts.

    The hospital I work at is 7p to 7a (on 12 hour floors) or 11p to 7a (in my unit, which, for whatever reason, is 8 hour shifts...)

    I would think this would be a pretty important thing to know. In my local hospital there are nurses in the ER who work 3a-3p(and vice versa) as well as a 1a-1p shift, in addition to the traditional 11p-7a and 7p-7a.
