GI lab hours?

  1. Hey,
    Hoping some one on here can help me answer this question. I am very interested in GI lab. I currently work on a surgical tele floor, and will have been there for 1 year in July. I am waiting for an opening in my hospital or somewhere else within our system for the GI lab. Unfortunately, I don't know anyone that works down there so I can't ask this question, but has anyone is GI lab (in hospital) ever worked 12 hour shifts? Meaning 12 hour shifts that are scheduled aside from call hours, which I know are a requirement. I am in a masters program so I cannot work 8 hours M-F as I'd have no time for clinic hours. I really want to work in GI lab because I would like to work with GI doc when I finish my NP. Just curious if anyone works in GI lab where they do 12 hour shifts?

    At my current workplace, we have nurses that work 8s, 10s, and 12s. We have 6 procedure rooms and generally do 60-75 procedures a day.
