so its happened *sniffle*
my unit manager won the battle ( I still maintain I will win the WAR booyah) , I go on day shift starting Monday
after a year and a bit of straight nights this is completely gonna knock me on my butt ........
I am , not a morning person to put it mildly....
to be up at 5am of my own free will is one thing ,to HAVE to wake up at 5am and haul ass into work for 7 is quite another..
just when I thought I had escaped the multidisciplinary team altogether, I will be cavorting with them on monday morning...
dieticians, social workers, doctors, speech therapy, pysio, OT .......oh how I havent missed you!
I can play dirty, when the inevitable occurs and we once again find ourselves short on night shift, as much as I would like to , I will NOT swap from days to nights to help out
my nice girl days are THRU
I'll be starring in the next "good girls gone bad" video for sure, so keep your eyes open...
wahhhhhhh I'm whiny , and I don't care, this is INJUSTICE
ah well , I can do it I suppose, I mean I did it before, as long as no one expects me to talk to them before noon everything should be just fine

Sorry you got pulled off nights Hapeewendy! (I can't believe that one. We can't find enough brave souls to go on nights where I work).
Changing shifts sucks! I feel your pain! But, have no fear, you'll adjust quicker than you think. I went from pms to days back to pms fairly easily. It only took a week or two to fully adjust.
I think the worst part is having to switch your whole routine around. Yeah, I know it was sweet on nocs not having all those darned people around (I liked that part too, when I did mandatory nocs awhile back). But at least on days, you do have all those people around as resources. (Trying to find a silver lining in this for you...are you buying any of it?)
Do you love nocs enough to want to change floors or hospitals? Most employers in my area pay extra for working NOCs. I am curious how this shift change will impact you. It could be a hard financial blow as well, depending on your shift diff. If you love Nocs that much, you are going to be a valuable asset to most employers. Something to keep in mind, if dayshift turns out to be not your thing.
PS- Coffee is your friend.

Or New Orleans and Mardi Gras.
Why not work where there's a celebration?
If I was 20 something, and single, I'd be packing.
