I am new to this site, but I did post in the Community Introductions forum. I am a new grad who was recently hired in the local hospital ED. I have been working 12 hour day shift 7a-7p for 3 months and now they are switching me to nights for 3 months. Tonight is my first night as 7p-7a and was wondering if anyone had any experience with this and advice when it comes to a sleep schedule. I have tried to prepare myself for the last few nights by staying up as late as I could and sleeping in as late as I possible. Not sure if this is the right way to go, sleep all day and up all night even on my days off? Anyway, if anyone has any advice/suggestions, it would be helpful.
Thanks in advance,
P.S. In case it matters, I work 12 hours/day or night in this case, 3 times per week.
