I graduated from PN classes a little over a year ago. I started out on night shift--hated it!! Got a day shift position, ended up hating the facility, lol. I'm glad I had to work nights for a while, though. There definitely is a huge difference between the shifts!! Days you have to deal with dr's rounds, family, meals, activities, therapies, pharmacies, management, etc. Nights you pass pills, do your assessments, chart, maintain equipment, etc. My girlfriend from school started out on days, though. I remember her screaming every day after work about "how in the world am I supposed to get everything done in 12 hours when I've got the dr giving orders, family asking questions, activities stealing my residents, and the phone ringing for me every fifteen minutes?" (Of course, that's paraphrased, but you get the idea.) Good news is: eventually you learn to manage your time. My best advice for you is determine if you function better during the daytime or night time. Either way, congratulations and best of luck!!
