I feel like these stressful 12 hour shifts are ruining my life. I feel stressed when at work and when I get back home thinking about going to work tomorrow.
I wish I could get paid much less but at a less stressful 8-5 type job. Anyone know where they hire lpns/lvns with about 6 months experience for an 8-5 job?

I'm a LPN and have been working Mon-Fri. for many years, and to be honest, the five days straight without a break are getting old. The weekends go by so fast it's unreal. Next month I will start working two weekends a month and can't wait to have a day off during the week to break up that five day stretch. Also looking forward to having days without all the chaos that goes on during the week on days. Oh, and I work 6:30a.m.-3:00p.m.
I worked in a clinic 8am-4:30pm Mon-Fri. and didn't like it at all. It was after five when I got home and was too exhausted to do anything. Also, not near enough pay for what I had to do day in and day out. Clinics can be great though. I just didn't work in the right one.
