Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me.
I know that ultimately this is my decision but I an nervous in several areas of my transition.
I am considering a job in a hospice in-unit. There, the nurses work 8 hour shifts instead of 12 hours. Currently I work 3, 12 hour night shifts a week. What I am considering is moving to evenings 5, 8 hours shifts a week. Does anyone here do this or know of someone who does it? I am a bit terrified at the notion of spending my workweek in the hospital like a "Normal" job. Nursing is a demanding career and the beauty of 12 hour shifts is that you're not in the hospital that much. On the other hand, you don't have to recover from an 8 hour shift like you do from 12 hours. I know it takes me a good day just to catch up on sleep and then the next day I'm fine.
If you could spare any words of wisdom or encouragement, I could use it. With all my heart I want to give hospice my every good effort, but there are a few details making me nervous. :uhoh21:
