I will be starting working night shift by choice in around 3 weeks; the reason for this is the extra money and I will be able to have open days to attend school.
I thought I would ask some questions to those that have worked or currently do nights.
1) How long have you been/were on nights and what did you find that helped you the most to have a "normal" life?
2) What is/was your sleeping schedule like? Is the room completely dak? How many hrs of sleep do you find are sufficient for you?I know that most people in this floor are allowed to work the 2-3 shifts straight, which is great.
3) Tips/Advice for the night shift person you wish you knew?
Thanks and have a great weekend!
