I am just curious if it is possible for nurses suffering from narcolepsy to work 12hr day/night shifts - with careful administration of one's medication.
Keep in mind I am living up North and the times for daylight are much different than when I lived in the south...

- Apr 28, '11 by nurse.sandiWow this is a tough question. I would really be careful. It is hard to stay awake at night. I know I worked that shift. Saw a nurse get fired...she could not stay awake. Discuss this with your Dr. Also, you may qualifiy for some type of disability either full or partial. Good luck.
