Shifts at your hospital? (all 7-7)

Posted

Specializes in Rehab/Post Acute. Has 1 years experience.

Just curious. I'm finishing up my 1st year of nursing school (one year to go)--- I'm wondering what shifts are available to new grads after orientation period. I want the night shift, but I was just wondering--- do all hospitals have just 7pm-7am (or day shift 7am-7p) or do some offer 11a-11p or 3p-3a (a nurse I worked with over the weekend, said that alot of hospitals had 11p-11a and 3p-3a which would work great for our schedule, but I didn't think hospitals had that shift, I thought it was pretty much all 7-7 )-- I was surprised. just wondering. Thanks!

I know that most ERs split their shifts. I've heard of 3p-3a, 11a-11p, 1p-1a, which my friend works in the ER, and 9a-9p. From where I've been though and interviewed, most floor Nursing Jobs are 7-7.

Just ask around where you live. I work 11-7 (wish we did 12's) but I have a friend who does 5-5 which I think is GREAT. (not at my hospital)

Oh - 5 to 5 would be so nice!!! When I am off orientation, I will be working 7pm-7:30am. I did 3-3:30am during my student nursing and LOVED it!!! I am worried about the 7-7:30 as I am not sure I will get enough sleep!!! Only time will tell....

Our unit has people who work straight 8 hours shifts, straight 12 hour shifts, or a mix of 8s and 12s. Shift options include 7a-330p, 7a-730p, 11a-1130p, 300p-1130p, 1100p-0730a, and 1100p-1130a. I work the mix of 8s and 12s and I love it. But I know other units at our hospital don't have this many options.

Why no break? I work nights and everyone I know that works nights, be it 8 or 12 needs to take a break to get something to eat. If you get a break figured in on daylight and evenings it should also be figured in on nights.

Most shifts at my hospital are 7-7, but in the ER people work 3-3, 5-5, 9-9, or 11-11 in addition to 7-7!
