I love working nights! I have been on nights for 3 years or so now. There are many perks! Less family member shenanigans, little to no upper management, the physicians are cooler, and even in the ER there is less stress overall. I work 12 hour shifts 3-4 days a week. I don't get a whole lot of sleep between my working days (long commute) and I lose my first day to sleep. But the rest of my days off, I sleep at night and stay up all day with my kids! We get tons of time together that way. The day I go back to work, I get up early morning, around 5 am, and stay up until around noon, then nap prior to work! I prefer nights, but like others are saying, its not for everyone. General stay on nightshift here in Missouri is about a year before most move to day shift. Hang in there!!
