    Work 5 days a week?
    Oh, heck no!
    I like having days off during the week and try to avoid working more than 2 days in a row if I can help it!
    I do not want to get up and go to work 5 days in a row...
    AMEN!!!

    I've only worked in offices Monday-Friday 8:30-5:00 with weekends and holidays off and I love it! I have two kids so that's more important to me than hospital settings right now. I had one job, at an allergy clinic with walk-in allergy shots, that had odd hours and I hated it. I'd work Monday 8:30-5, Tuesday and Thursday 9-6:30, and Friday 8-noon. That doesn't sound too bad but if it was your night to close you'd stay a half hour past closing, so on Tuesdays or Thursdays you're getting out at 7 and had to be back the next morning at 7:15 or 7:45. I know that's what you can expect in 7-7 shifts, but it's not every day. I missed so much of my oldest son's school events and sports and that bothered me.

    As to the Halloween costume, I've got one. Picture it: black shoes, white socks, black pants, white shirt, black short jacket, black sunglasses--Oppa Gangam Style.

    I did that for 18 months. The on call was a killer some nights out all night and then work all day. I spoke with a hospice nurse recently who put 500 miles on her car in 1 day. Thats alot of time on the road.

    GI lab. M-F. First shift starts at 6:30 am- 3:00 PM, closing shift at 8 am-closing (usually between 3:30 and 5 PM). The lab is open one Saturday a month, but working it is voluntary. Call is one week once a month. It's associated with a major health system so pay is comparable to hospital pay. No holidays
