    I HAVE BEEN A RN FOR 23 YEARS, WORKING THE LAST 11 YEARS PART-TIME 2-10 SHIFT. THIS IS NOT THE SHIFT FOR A MOTHER WITH YOUNG CHILDREN AT HOME. THANKFULLY, I ONLY WORK IT 3 DAYS A WEEK. THE PATIENTS SEEEM TO GET WORKED UP AS THE EVENING GOES ON AND YOU GET THE MAJORITY OF ADMISSIONS. YOU HAVE LESS STAFF AS COMPARED TO DAYSHIFT. MOST PATIENTS ARE SO DRUGGED IN THE MORNING THEY START WAKING UP BY 4PM. SORRY THIS SOUNDS SO DEPRESSING BUT I THINK IT IS REALITY. GOOD LUCK!

    Our hospital has yet to come up with any retention for seasoned nurses. They do spend most of the time and money getting new nurses to come aboard. Ifeel it is shameful not to compensate nurses who have spent their entire career(like me) in a hospital.Let's face it...........MONEY TALKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
