I work the night shift (12 hours in a hospital on a mental health floor) and I am being offered the day shift but I don't want to work it. Am I crazy? Truth is for some odd reason where I work, the day shift is short-staffed. I can't wrap my head around it. I like ducking and dodging management, not having to deal with too many families, and being able to to avoid the "staff detectives" that watch your every move while you work ( the ones that say, did you foam in and out?). I don't want to get in my car early in the morning, and have to drive to work. It would take me an hour or more with traffic to get to work on time. It only takes me about 30 minutes to get to work right now. My body has adjusted to working nights pretty well. I have the flow down. I feel at peace for once in my life despite the challenges of nursing. For all of previous nursing positions I have worked days and I always had a strong urge to quit them. Nights has it's challenges but I am managing them. Occasionally I look like the below picture but I am fine. What do you think?
