I just graduated with my RN and am working nights at a children's hospital. I love the work but it's been difficult for us to transition to me working nights, sleeping days. I find it easier to stay up at least half the night on my nights off, since I need to be at my best for the patients on my working nights. I cannot function on no sleep as a good nurse.
Anyone else do night shift? How does that work with family? What hours do you sleep on nights off?
