    I have worked all 3 shifts, but am a true night shifter and have no intention of changing to days. Never had any of the day shifters in my place work a night shift, but I have stayed over and worked days. The biggest shock is to the CNA's when I pitch in to help them - something they say the day nurses never do, even if they have the time.

    Too much chaos, drama, politics and favoritism on days IMHO. Night shifters are better team players and multi-taskers out of necessity. Right now, I work with a great crew who busts butt when needed and has fun when time allows.
    I agree, day time has to much noise, I could not even think because of all the noise. I prefer the Night Shift!

    I am a recovering nurse who voluntarily surrendered my license in March 2007 for diverting pain meds. I am in the Alternative program in nevada, and will be getting my license, with conditions, back in November 2007. I will be monitored for 5 years. I have learned alot about the disease of addiction, and am in a good program. I am nervous about obtaining employment with my conditional license. I don't know who will hire a nurse with addiction issues. I am leaving it in God's hand. I have been an ICU/CCU nurse for 12 years, and I can't go back to that right now due to my issues with the BON. I will have to learn another area of the field, which is good. Any suggestions for employment out there?

    You can go into Drug and Alcohol Rehab

    does anyone know if they use it for chronic pain patients. my pain specialist said she did not
    think i was a candidate for it, since i'm chronic pain, but i wonder if it would be better than taking other narcs for life?

    most of our pt. are prescribed, lyrica, diclofenac, or gabapentin for pain

    i work in an out-patient/day treatment dual-diagnosis clinic. the important thing to remember is that addictions are a chronic illnesses, like hypertension and asthma. we do not say i treated "asthmatics" or "hypertensives" today; and therefore we do not treat "addicts". their addictions are not who they are. they are people with addictions. treating addictions as a "moral defect" is an antiquated philosophy and is not evidence-based.
    i agree

    Congrats on being a recovering nurse and graduating, i have been working in the field for about a year now, and so far i love it.:heartbeat It has been challenging, you have to remember with some of the behaviors that they are sick and learning to deal with some things as you know, but it has been very rewarding. Good luck with finding a job, they are few and far between, i got lucky when i found this one.
