    Hear what? Also, "at night I dress up as a nurse" strikes me as saying night nurses aren't real nurses. Maybe I'm just letting the remarks of day shift get to me though.

    I love being a night nurse! Don't be sensitive. It take a special person to be up all night taking care of others. Not everyone can do it.

    It's intended to be a joke or a play on words It says night nurses rock! Absolutely nothing negative implied.

    I worked nights for years! Loved it. I'm still a night owl!

    I have a saying whenever I'm on night trauma call:

    One night with me will change your life.

    You're welcome.

    This confused me, for a second I thought you were saying that you put a pair of scrubs on and stand in the mirror with a stethescope. I was like...uhhh....ok. Lol, I get it now.

    At night, I dress up in a patriotic leotard and knee-high, high-heeled boots and fight crime.

    But to each his own.....

    I love working as a night-shift nurse!!! If it was not for the existence of night shifts in nursing, I would not be a nurse.

    What about the invisible crime-fighting med cart you fly around in at night?

    I LOVE being a night nurse.... not having to "deal" with administration except through email, or doctors unless I call them... our worlds maybe be different... but I will never work day time... I have done it once.. and never again.

    A motto I picked up years ago... "Night Nurses.... keeping them alive till 0705." I love my day shift coworkers... but I think it takes a special kind of person to put up with THAT kind of hell. There is a special kind of person to work our shift as well... I work a ICE/CCU and Step down unit in Kentucky... and all kinds of holy hell comes unglued at night... I just don't need admins mucking up my job when it does... you admin... I will nurse.

    There is however that special hour... between 2 and three... when all the ativan and ambien craziness is slowing down for about 45 min... lol and no meds to pass till 3... that the quiet happens.. and if we are lucky... we may get to eat dinner during that time... however if your a Friday or Sunday night.. not gonna happen.. cause Admissions will come and take your dinner away...LOL

    I love my night shift as well as my partners in crime! some of the best nurses I know...

    I'm currently in a BSN program and I work the night shift as a CNA. After I'm done I hope to work the night shift as a nurse. I said I'd never work nights but I really enjoy it now and hope to enjoy it as a nurse too.
