Ok, well I will be the negative one.. :)
I HATED nights!!! I'm also a new grad, and started at night due to the shift differential.. But it literally kept me sick.. (didn't help that I found out later that I have Narcolepsy) I'm married but with no kids, so I thought it would work out well, and maybe it would if we did 12hr shifts, but we do 8s so that is 5 days that I have to work nights, and when I was off all I wanted to do was sleep...
Pros.... Less people running around... Family, Physical Therapy, Case Managers, DOCTORS
Cons........ Usually a heavier pt load on nights, less help when needed, and a messed up social life..
Good Luck. Everyone is different.. Its worth a shot..
