I love my 12 hour shifts-been doing it for many years- I am 63 and won't trade it for anything- never have to work more then 2 days in a row unless I choose to - nice to have 4 days a week off

To eat is a necessity.
To eat intelligently is an art.

PEACE- it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still BE CALM IN YOUR HEART.

Life begins at the edge of your comfort

welcome,RUBIEAGLE............who have received great advice from CHLOIANNA..........wishing you all the best in whatever you choose to do.......blessings and hugs...........lita

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

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.

I'm too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed.
