1. Hi all you US nurses, I'm still figuring out some of your abbreviations/terminolgy. Can somebody tell me what 1st/2nd/3rd shift means?

    The exact hours depend on the facility you are working in, but 1st shift is day shift, usually 7a-3p or so; 2nd shift is evening shift, usually 3p-11p or so; and 3rd shift is night shift, usually 11p-7a or so.
