The VAMC in Hampton, VA started 12hr shifts right before we moved to MD in 2006 on the MedSurg floor.

I thought only the NOD's got to work 12's?.. The CBOC's are mostly 8's for sure.

VAMC here in Miami does 12's.

Las Vegas ICU/ER are 12 hours

Every other floor and clinic is 8 hours...

Milwaukee VA ICU some 8's, some 12s but the 12's are getting harder and harder to come by

Rumor has it the floors still do 12s
