Ok thank you for your onsite! I guess the positive side is I am not driving! I have tried sleeping but it's kind of awkward and if I miss my stop I would be pretty screwed !
Aren't you taking the commuter rail from one terminal to the other and it's therefore impossible to miss your stop? I'd try to sleep on that part of the commute and then be awake for the subway portion. Try to take the E line as much as possible and if you miss the LMA stop, you can get off at either Brigham Circle or Fenwood Rd and walk through the Brigham and take the bridge on the 2nd floor. And if you ended up going all the way to Heath St, the train will turn around and have you right back in Longwood in 10 minutes.
When I relied on the MBTA and worked nights, in the mornings I walked to the C line so that if I fell asleep on it on the way home, I was only one stop away from my apartment and still walking distance rather than if I fell asleep on the D line and ended up way in the suburbs.
I did know nurses when I worked there who lived down the Cape and stayed at a hotel ~20 minutes or so away from Boston when they worked back to back days. If the increase in salary is worth the commute for you, you could consider something like that.
If you decide it's not going to work, isn't there a satellite Children's Hospital at Dartmouth location in Manchester, NH?
