    Adjusting to NIGHT SHIFTS advice??

    Thank you for your input, I appreciate you! I think the hardest part for me will be adjusting at first but I know I will get used to it. & I do like the fact that nights are more calm and fewer people. Thanks again!

    Adjusting to NIGHT SHIFTS advice??

    Hi everyone! I am a new grad RN starting my residency next month on a tele floor — I will be working FT nights 7pm-7am. I’m kinda nervous and scared that it will be hard for me to adjust, and I literally have no idea what to expect. If you work nights (or have ever worked nights), what did you do to adjust? What are your off days like? What are your meals/eating schedules like? What is your skincare like? (I have a day and nighttime skincare routine—I’m wondering if I should flip them once I start working nights.) Also, is it best to work 3 consecutive night shifts? Or is it better to spread the shifts out throughout the week? Any advice or tips help! I plan on getting black out curtains and I already have a fan to block out noise.
