From how much night nurses make to how to adjust to your new sleeping schedule, this is everything you need to know about a night-shift nurse job.
Many new night shift nurses ask the question “How do I stay awake on night shift?” The body isn’t meant to be up at those hours and there are seriously physiological ans psychological forces working again you. Your body releases chemicals at night that encourage you to go to sleep. So if you find you’re having trouble staying awake at night, it’s just because you’re human. Even so it, it can be done and many nurses thrive on the night shift and would even tell you that they would never go back to day shift.
