Ugh, I hate those. I'm an RN as well, usually work days, but did agree to pick up a few night shifts here and there. And it was awful.

They asked me to cover since this is the shift I was on before switching to first... so I figured why not...

they asked me tonight if I wanted to switch back to 3rds... um no thank you

My 14 month old decided 4 am was a good time to get up for the day. I am so tired.

lol! I started out on days, and switched to nights very briefly when we had a medical emergency with another nurse. It was a very rough two weeks. I covered a few more nights after that, but it wouldn't be something I'd want to do full time.

I'm covering a shift for a coworker that called in sick. In reality, she called out to go to a graduation party. Whatever lol.....we were all young once and did similar things.

But now, I'm sick for real. In and out of the bathroom. I only have 2 hrs left. I really want to call the ER and ask them to just call me in my dept if they have any orders. Then I could lay my head down. And possibly feel human.


Oh....and if you like them, try those hot tamale candies next time to stay awake. They work wonders for me lol

I feel ya. I used to work graveyard till 6 or 7am, then babysat from 10-3 then worked at a bowling alley 5-9 when I went back to waitress overnight. It sucked.

Now I'm just up because third trimester insomnia and nerves because I'm scared of what this ultrasound will reveal:/

Remember to stay moving and keep your mind occupied.
