Question for nurses on night shifts


Thanks for reading, if you work night shifts full-time, i just wanted to ask you some things.
I was wondering how nurses who work over night balance their work and social life. When do you guys find time for family or friends since you have to work all night?
Also another question is how do you guys adjust your sleep patterns and schedule on weekends when you do not have to work overnight to get the most out of your weekends?

And would you say that working overnight takes a toll on your health and body?

Thank you for your replies in advance.


The description I give is that night shifters are a different breed. Understand your body & don’t neglect yourself. You got to be good to yourself to be there for your patients & loved ones. Anticipate, planning
