Apply at Baycare. Work mobile pool if you can. It’s $45/hour. Night shift is $5 more shift differential for any nurse. You can easily make $35+/hour dayshift with experience. It depends on specialty. They pay well.

I transitioned from the floor into case management in March 2018. It is a lot different but I like it more and more as I go along. I work from home 4 days and in the office 1 day a week. It is a blessing. My pay basically stayed the same but I am no longer night shift and off all weekends and holidays plus my PTO base is better because at the hospital my base rate was lower.

I've heard of it here in Florida with HCA hospitals. The pay is low until you're on the floor in your assumed position but then it goes to their base rate pay. A nurse I graduated with went into a CCU or ICU StaRN program due to no experience but if you have experience I wouldn't start out as a "new" nurse and do one of these.
I notice it too but a lot of ours are homeless or basically always institutionalize do and seem to eat a lot and almost hoard food if they can so maybe a mix of that and the meds??? Some rooms hit me like a brick wall of funk when I open the door to do a Q15 round.

I'd leave. My techs always do their rounds as scheduled and it's never an issue. If I remind anyone they aren't vengeful and admin backs this up wholeheartedly. Patient and staff safety are a priority.
Dayshift and nightshift differs but for adult we have up to 1:16 at night with 2 techs ... On days they get 2:16 with 2-3 techs depending on acuity ... Geriatric is 1:8 with 2 techs day or night and pediatric is 1:10 with 2 techs day or night .. If acuity is higher they always try to staff extra
They are sticklers for time so try to get your employer to work with you regarding timing of classes. All of my clinicals were 6:30am-6:30pm so it had to be on a day off. I did work full time but luckily I had PTO to use when needed.
