I will be starting a new job, in a new hospital in a new state. I'm used to working days and I'll be going to nights this time. Wondering if any of you seasoned night nurses have some tips for working nights? Best way to get good sleep in the day? A good reccomendatoon on black out curtains maybe?
After a few sleepless days, that shiny tin foil on the outside gets real easy to look at, real quick!
I wish I had the guts to turn my phone off, but I'm afraid the sky will fall, and I won't know it. I just can't do it! My family and friends are pretty good about calling when I am up, but I would just die if someone needed something, and couldn't reach me- to many people have helped me at odd times to just cut it off.
