so! with that said, i like night shift. cut all that out, and I have time to really focus on care, charting, and reading the progress notes. i give day nurses a ton of credit. i also wouldn't give up having time to do CNA work. I used to be an aid and I feel like night shift allows more time w/ the patients.

I'm pretty pale and I have a slight Vit D deficiency so yeah I work nights. Nights was a good stepping stone for me and it allowed me to interact with my coworkers. My problem with nights is I feel like days scrutinizes my work so much and the social implications of being the whole world revolving around the daywalkers.
