Australian nurses: since starting to work here, I've found it seems to be a common occurance to be scheduled to work an evening shift then come back on a day shift. A friend who just left a contracted job in Canberra said the same was true there.
Is this common throughout Australia? If so, what are the reasons for doing this, even when staffing numbers are sufficient?
Does this happen everywhere in Australia? And why? Are there nurses that like this sort of rostering?
Many thanks for responses.....
