Okay, I have been working nights for almost 2 weeks now. I don't mind it, but if any of you follow my food you can see that it is not as great has it has been the months I was unemployed. I also don't seem to get as many steps in each day as I did when I worked day shift. I also seem to think I like the day shift staff better than the night people. The thing is right now, I need the night shift differential to make up for the 3-4 months I wasn't working.
I think I may have found the unit where I will switch to day shift after I get my finances in a little more comfortable zone. I will also hope by then that the day shift is a little better staffed than what it currently is. Yeah, I know it is hard to imagine, but this is a unit where the night shift has better staffing than the day shift.
Things are going alright at work. Next week is my last week of orientation, then at least, I will have a little less of someone looking over my shoulder. I know there will always be new information and initiatives coming down the pike to adjust to. Right now the adjustment I need to make the most is how to clean up my nutrition on my work nights and also my nights off. (Cannot keep eating just to stay awake.)
