    most days 4-5....a good list on a good noc 8. The acuity is crazy so a "good" list is few and far between.

    I love being a nurse so 10 on that.....I hate working nights that gets a 1. If I ever get back on days it will be a 10.

    Hate, hate, HATE nights with a passion. (Did I mention I hate nights?)

    8 to 10 0n my current job, if it falls below a 7 on a regular basis I change jobs. Been a nurse for 15 years and usually love what I am doing. 7 full time positions so far and 6 casuals during my career. I have worked med-surg, ICU, CCU, neuro, trauma, telemetry, agency critical care, ER, PHRN specialty flight team, RN/paramedic air ambulance, county mental health clinic, critical care travel, geriatrics, dementia and private duty.

    When I graduated from nursing school I went to a med/surg floor =1. I hated that job, would cry on the way to work sometime. It was just overwhelming. responsibility that a nurse has was just too much for me.

    Went to Endoscopy = Other than the nasty docs, and how far it was from my home, I'd give it a 7.

    Now I'm a Diabetes Educator (working on certification) and I'd give it a 9.
    I still go back to that med/surg floor two fridays per month, but it's much easier to take now. Still don't like to go, but love the extra moolah.
