Hi everyone! I'm a nursing student at the moment.I was talking with a few nurses about how they had night shifts and started that way so I was excited about it and began searching it up online to hear others' experiences but I noticed many people also began to develop insomnia because they'd get home during the day and work during the night!I have been waiting so long to be a nurse but a worry began to develop in me that the same would happen to me and I woulddevelop insomnia or have a hard time falling asleep knowing how sleep is so important and then messing up at work and losing my license or something! Does anyone else experience this and have any advice? The more I worry about sleep is what prevents me from getting sleep so lately I've just been not caring about it or the future too much and it does help me cope with it. I hope I don't become hooked on any sleeping pills or anything like that b/c I am a very active person always exercising and taking care of my diet and all! Do you guys use Valerian Root or melatonin? I hear small doses of melatonin is not addictive or something? If you guys do have insomnia, how bad has it affected your patients? Have you ever done something life-threatening?
