    How is Working the 3-11 shift with small children at home

    I loved 3-11 in my twenties. Haven't worked one in a while though since I now work 12s. 3 to 11 three days a week isn't bad at all. Now, 5 days a week, it would be rough, but 24 hours seems perfect especially if you have a lot of support.
  2. Has anyone ever thought about how their own personal qualities can both help and hinder them in their nursing practice? Am I the only one who just wants to take good care of my patients, get treated with respect, clock out, get paid and go home...
  3. I knew I liked you for a reason! I am the same way.

    Allnurses Debates!

    Yeah...I have been here for 12 years (OMG), and I have definitely seen it and (I admit earlier on) to have participated in it. It definitely is frustrating and I can see why people wouldn't want to put up with it. I used to participate in this s...

    I Want Decent Health Benefits! Is That Too Much to Ask?

    It wasn't meant to be a put down, but if I state something that multiple people misinterpret, then it probably means I didn't make myself clear, not that everyone is too stupid to understand my post (which feels like what you are implying, as those y...

    Allnurses Debates!

    This isn't directed at anyone in particular. But I find people who dislike debating usually fall into 2 categories: I often find that people who hate debating often hate when people disagree with them, not so much the debate itself. They often ...

    I Want Decent Health Benefits! Is That Too Much to Ask?

    You said that you see children as more liabilities than assets. And I replied that yes. Kids are expensive and require a lot of responsibility. If multiple posters misinterpreted your posts then that is on you...not us. So if you are ...

    I Want Decent Health Benefits! Is That Too Much to Ask?

    I got your premise. Kids are expensive. I am expecting my first child and if I couldn't afford one, didn't want to pay the exorbitant costs to raise one or the responsibility, I wouldn't have one. That said, with birth rates at an all-time low,...

    Are You Working Past Retirement Age?

    The cushy laid back job was in reference to working at the library, not as a school nurse. Sorry if that wasn't clear.

    Are You Working Past Retirement Age?

    Absolutely not. I am saving like hell in order to be able to dip out of FT work by age 50. I am on the "FAT FIRE" program. If I were to work more, it would be a very cushy, laid back job at the local library or maybe as a school RN with the best...

    Please give me some advice...L&D vs PP

    I wouldn't say that PP is "easy"...think about it. You have to take care of mom AND baby/babies. If you have four moms, then that is 8 patients you have to chart and document on (more if there are twins). Many places are doing away with nursery nurse...

    I Hope Some Of Your Days Are Still Worth It

    It amazes me that we still are having so many people die of COVID three years into this pandemic. I am so sorry that you are still having to go through with this. And tripled adult ICU assignments are never safe.

    Can we talk about the Travel Nurse Cap?!

    "One week is more than enough to recover from nursing fatigue." ...on what planet? If I plan for vacations, I plan for AT LEAST two weeks of PTO, scheduled in a way that I have almost three weeks off.

    Minute Clinic Preceptorship vs Urgent Care

    I have and I liked it. A bird in one hand is worth more than two in the bush. Also, almost always guaranteed a job upon graduation. Pay is higher in retail clinic than in regular primary care and there is more scheduling flexibility (no M-F, 9-5).
