I have accepted a position on night shift at a hospital pending my state boards. So for those of you who work nights, how do toy manage life? For example, the place I will be working is a 50 minute drive away. My wife is requesting a transfer with her job but cannot be moved until next fall. I'm just concerned about falling asleep at the wheel driving back home.I read some tips and someone said spend money for a motel, but I can't justify paying 1,000$ a month for a hotel stay - and check in is not until 3 pm (average cost is 75$/night + 16% tax)Also, how do you manage any social life...spending time with family and friends?
