Norfolk General - 12 hr shifts


I was told that Norfolk General offers 12 hr shifts. Does anyone know if you work 3 days straight or do they break up the days?:)

It depends on the unit. My floor does "self-scheduling" and generally no one has to work 3 in a row unless that is their preference. I recommend talking with the manager of the unit(s) you are interested in to ask how they handle scheduling.

My ED does self scheduling, so you make it whatever you want your schedule to be and the coordinator will move you around a few days to even out the staffing, but the schedule stays pretty true to what you initially put in. Like the above poster said, specifically ask the manager/clinical coordinator for confirmation.
