Ok, now can anyone tell me why as a new hire there are no day positions???? I see the majority of us prefer off shifts, and I think it is fair to say we are a random sample-how interesting!!
I am one of the few who PREFER DAYS (!) especially the 7A-7P.
I think the 7-7 shifts are great, three days a week, plus the bonus of a bit of extra time in your day to handle emergencies, loose ends etc. The hours between 3-4 when you are not giving report to anyone are great for just that!
BTW- I switched from nursing home to hospital, 7-7 days for 7-7 nights. Still on orientation on 7-3 days though.
