With the holidays fast approaching, I wanted to put together a quick gift guide for nursing students and nurses alike. These items are either on my own personal wish list or items that I currently used.

- Your nights off really aren't nights off.
You look at the schedule and think Wonderful, I have three nights off in a row, I can finally get that shopping I have been meaning to do done. WRONG.

Working as a full time nurse really has impeded me from being able to not only "live" a normal life, but also writing on the blog. I love being able to interact with all of you and truly hope that my documentation is helping someone somewhere.
Going into my career, I sought out night shift jobs because I always heard how the environment is more conducive for new nurses to learn in. I did not really think twice about the hours I would be sleeping or the scheduling issues I would face. A month or so in, I sort of am regretting my decision to go nights, mainly for my health.

Working at night is such a strange phenomenon. You go into the hospital on one day and leave on the next. And while everyone outside the hospital typically sleeps during the night, you will find a large portion of your patients wide awake throughout the night.
