Hello! I just officially graduated yesterday! I just accepted a job as a full-time staff RN. The offer was full-time at 32 hours a week. In my past life (2nd career here) I worked full-time at 40+ hours a week, so originally I assumed I would be working 40 hours a week as a nurse. So with that being said, does anyone here work 40 hours a week or more? The nurse manager on the unit that I am working on said that I can easily pick up extra shifts if I want to work 40 hours. (Which, to financially recover from student loans, isn't a bad idea for me). But she also mentioned that not a lot of nurses work 40hours a week because they find it exhausting. Does anyone here work 40 hours a week and find that to be exhausting? I will be working swings, 3-11. Thanks!
