    I can't stand 3-11 it is like you have no life everything passes you by. Currently where I work. night shift seems to be always short. I have been on overtime so far because of staffing. I love nights I can't work any other shift.

    Not quite the topic but relevant - the area understaffed completely here is aged care- all shifts and its getting harder to get staffed particualrly qualified - why wouldnt you go to the acute section when you get paid so much more there and there are higher staff levels - it is getting so hard and so sad. - the light at the tunnekl is getting dimmer at the moment

    Where I work, nights seem to be the most short-staffed. You know, b/c pts just stop coming in to the ER at 2300...especially the drunk/belligerant ones!

    Weekends aren't usually too bad b/c of all the people who want to work weekend option (work 2 12's on the weekend, get paid for 40 hours.)
