    I wonder if this is a regional thing. I never heard of NOC until I started here on allnurses. I mean I know what it means, but the shift being called NOC, never heard it.

    lol, i always tried to figure out what it meant, until one day when i brilliantly came to the conclusion that noc = nurse on call . wow, i guess we learn something new every day. i am so embarrassed!

    it will depend on the duty roster policy of the institution as has been suggested it may be a Night shift from the (cod) latin Nocte , it may be a general 'on call period' or it may be a Night time on call
