    I lived alone for a long time, because I love living alone (turns out I like living with a partner better, though). Bills are easy to keep up with. They're due about the same time every month, so it's not like they creep up on you. You do housework when you can, which sometimes means at 2am on your day off because night shifts has messed up your sleep schedule. The best part is that you can walk around in your underpants, talk to yourself, sing to yourself, decorate however you want, and study/read/watch whatever you want whenever you want. It turns out that 3-4am is a very quiet hour in a lot of places, so it's a good time to study. If you're awake. Because night shift has messed up your sleep schedule.

    I live alone and I'm childless. My house is not clean, but it is not due to lack of time. Cleaning is an unpleasant task for me, so I do not prioritize it.

    I've worked all shifts imaginable. When you are alone, there is no one else to worry about disturbing.

    I've been living alone since I was 17. Get a pet. Cats are low maintenance. It's a real home when you have a friendly face greeting you at the door, I couldn't live without them.

    Quote from hillbillienurse
    I did not present my question as a complaint, but as a question. I wrote the question for a friend. Now that the bad attitude bunch has squealed and shaken a crooked finger, I will wait and be appreciative of answers that aren't laden with venom from elsewhere.
    What "venom"? You asked a question and a few different people have answered. I don't read anything negative or critical in the responses. Yes, an RN can be assigned to work as a CNA. Most of us have had that experience over the years at one time or another. I've never minded it particularly; I was getting paid my usual wages for what was usually a much easier shift.

    Quote from direw0lf
    Hi I'm a student starting my second year in the fall. Originally I was going to move with family after graduation, but I decided I didn't want to move to that area. I currently hate where I live with every fiber of my being! So moving is my #1 motivation to push myself hard in school and obviously important to me. My BF will not be moving with me either because of his career. We both are accepting of this, that I chose location and he chose career over our relationship but anyway the point is I'll be moving alone to an area where I don't know anyone.

    So I was wondering about nurses who live alone. Are you a single parent? Do you have pets? How do you work those things out if so with 12 hr shifts? Do you keep up with the bills well enough and housework? I don't know this doesn't seem that important of a topic but I'm asking anyway and interested in the answers, Thank you
    I don't live alone, but I imagine it will take some adjustment. 12 hour night shifts were hard living with someone, without kids and just pets. I never felt caught up, but of course, I was. I was just always tired.
    Of course this important. We just had 10 plus pages on "pubes" for goodness sakes! This is your life! It sounds as if you are thinking this through. Good for you.
    If you need someone to walk your direwolf, hmu.
    Best of luck!
