After several months of day shift in med-surg, I'm a/b to start working nights on a psych unit. I'm in a part-time Psych NP program, & I feel this will help me build a stronger foundation in Psych. However, as with anyone, I feel that adequate, regular sleep is crucial to be alert on the job, mentally healthy, & content.
For someone who works nights or has made a similar transition, what can I do to ensure a smooth transition & routinely & peacefully sleep during the day? Any tips are appreciated! Thanks!
