There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results. When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world Breathe in love & compassion.. Breathe out peace & forgiveness. Pacific time

The hours of the job depends on the hospital you work at. Some of our unit secretaries work 8, some 12. As for fatigue...any job is tiring. There are busy days and busier days. It's not a job for the faint of heart. There is much dealing with the public and with physicians and other difficult people.
Can't speak to the specifics of your question, however as someone who DOES work longer days, I can tell you that as I have come down the scale and made better food and fitness choices my overall stamina has GREATLY improved!
I'm so pleased you are giving SparkPeople another try and hope that TOGETHER we can succeed in reaching our goals! :-)

New member to this team, but not new to SP - I have a question, can y'all help?
Is there anyone on this team who has the above job or knows someone who does? Currently, I'm an MT working at home, but as my mom's getting older, I feel like I need to get a job that will pay better. I would like to know the pros & cons of working as a unit secretary such as is it 4 (9-hour days) or 3 (12-hour days), how tired do you get? etc.
Pain Is Temporary. Pride Is Forever.
I'm too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed.
