    I agree with the OP's points! I am very close with the two other nurses on NOCs as well as the amazing nursing aides. It is nice to be able to speak freely without feeling judged!

    So true about night shift but I think day shift should be the ones getting paid more, since obviously they have to take the crap from managers, family members, and the other nurses on the floor. I have worked both shifts and know the differences very well.

    I'd give my left nut to work on night shift! However I am involved in so many projects and researches at work due to school, that at this time I dont foresee it happening! Maybe in 2.5 years when I am done with my MSN and start working on my PHD.

    I have been working the night shift since I started nursing 2 years ago. It can be a bit confusing to the body at times but I wouldn't trade it for the world. I think that the night shift family is amazing we work so well together and often work with limited support but get the job done without complaint or whining. I think I will stick with the night shift as long as I can.
