Yes, it is possible to be a nurse and work only day shift. I started out doing days, and went to nights a few years later for the large shift differential. It's all about money
Of course, night shift seems to be a little more laid back when it comes to orders, dr visiting, management hovering.. etc... There is still a lot of work to do, but less interuptions.
Some hospitals might want to place you on night shift, and you may get passed over for a few jobs as a new grad, but you can find a day shift position somewhere, i'm sure of it.
