Hey everyone! I recently accepted a job as a PCA in my hometown hospital.. I am super excited to begin this journey however I feel like I have a ton of questions before I jump into the job in 2 weeks. I would love it if anyone could give me some advice!

-Since I am working a 12hr night shift.. How do you adjust your sleeping time to get ready for the night shift as well as when it's your day off how do you change it so you still have time to hang out with friends/family? 

-I will not start nursing school until January but how difficult is it to work a full-time night position AND go through school?

-I have no previous experience with any medical institution so what tips could you give me that will help smooth my transition?

As I said, I am super excited to begin this new position but also nervous. Any advice would be appreciated!
