All the hospitals in my area staff with 12 hour shifts only. Does anyone work in a hospital that does 8 hour shifts? If so, which area of the country are you in?:o

I have a couple of friends who are nurses who do 8 hour shifts in California and Ohio. In California, there are even short-hour(4 hour) shifts. Good luck on finding a suitable working situation!

The floor I work does 12's BUT there is at least one floor in the hospital that does strict 8 hour shifts..the nurse manager on that floor does not like 12's because he does not feel it is safe (he may have a point!) The entire hospital is trying to convert to 12 hour shifts..I work in Northern Illnois

Arkansas---12, 8 and the truly beautiful and magnificent 4 hour. The 4 hours are great because they are usually only 6 hours.
