I am starting my first year in nursing and I am just thinking ahead to when I finish and get a job.
I have 3 little ones who will be in years 4,3 and 1 when I will hopefully have a job in a hospital. Now I just don't know how it will work, I don't have family around me to look after my kids for a few hours if hours clash with hubby's.
How does it usually work, do you rotate around between day and night shifts? How long in advance do you usually get a roasted so you can prepare? Can you choose night or day or do you have to do both? And do the hours you start and finish change or are they standard ie 9pm to 9am or can one shift be certain times and then next shifts totally different?
Any insights into working as a nurse would be awesome!! Oh and I am in QLD.
