    Wouldn't that depend on a lot of factors?

    I'd say much like anyone in any other profession or career's lifestyle.

    i imagine it would be as varied and unique, as the personalities that comprise the nursing population...yes?

    AN RN is an RN when she is face to face with RN tasks... in rest an RN is a human been, like you... HUMAN all in all

    Well, I don't know about y'all, but I can NOT get rid of the dang papparazzi..
    Heh. Really though, I'd guess just like every other person with a job that works you too hard and doesn't appreciate you...

    I guess I don't completely understand what your asking. Money lifestyle, its ok. Life outside of work is a bit different for me in that I work second shift. So I am often awake when most of my friends are sleeping and sleeping when they are awake. However, I have always been a bit of a night owl, so not a big deal for me.

    I'm a night shifter so I guess a little different from your average 9-5er. I am physically active at work, lives are on the line, I don't sit down too much (most nights), I have a weird sleep schedule and a twisted sense of humor.

    Is it just me or do most of us night people tend to have a twisted sense of humor??? :lol_hitti

    I have extremes. Sometimes I am running around so much my butt forgets what it feels like to sit. Then I am so lazy that my butt forgets how to move.

    .........and food is my drug.

    Well, let's see. After the hair and makeup people are done, the TV crew follows me around all day. They annoy me and it's hard to fit the camera guy in my car with all the other stuff, but we manage. Sometimes the boom mic falls into my sterile field during a dressing change and I yell, but I think they do it on purpose for the drama. After work, we get dressed up and dine at whatever is the "in" five-star restaurant of the week, and Gordon Ramsey usually shows up at some point. That guy <rolls eyes>, sheesh, whatta mouth! After some time spent clubbing--never waiting in line, dahling--we mosey on home and I get my nightly full-body massage, hoping that Sven the Masseur isn't a paparazzi in disguise. After I'm bathed, perfumed, and powdered, I spend the rest of the night in silk sheets, listening to carefully prepared, motivational subliminal recordings: "I'm glad I'm a nurse. I enjoy helping people. Everyone is useful. Even doctors provide a service."

    Muahahahahaha!
