A hospital in my area has recently been posting day shift positions that require evening and night shifts as needed. I've spoken to nurses who have taken these positions and they are already looking for other jobs because switching shifts is hard on them. I've seen hospitals that have rotating shifts but also have some positions that are strictly days. This hospital has said that all new day shift positions will require other shifts as needed. Is this a new trend? I hope it isn't.

That is completely normal where I work. there are some straight day lines but most are days/eves or day/night lines.Everyone one works their share of weekends.We also have both 8 and 12 hour shifts. I work part time and I will sometimes work all three shifts in the space of a week.
