I am a new grad, still on orientation. I worked days for the first 6 weeks and I switched to working nights (not by choice) for two weeks now. Is it common for family and friends not to have a clue about the stress we new nurses are under? Also, anyone else have a problem getting people to understand what working nights is like? I had a day off today and my husband woke me up at 7:30 AM!! I turn my phone off during the day when I am trying to sleep, and I am glad I do---people call me and leave messages, "Why are you sleeping so late?" Help!
