Are you allowed to sleep at the facility? Is the position just so there is a responsible person on site? Do you have classes Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and every other Thursday?

If you have classes and aren’t allowed to sleep, I don’t think that working nights would be a great idea.

Working nights is really tough on your body. I am constantly swithcing back and forth between working nights and sleeping nights so I am on the same schedule as my family, which sound like you would need to do for school. I think if it works best for you,then go for. That is what I keep telling myself and then hopefully at some point when my kids are older I will switch back to days.

I work 7pm to 7am I never sleep before going in onmy first night shift you will be suprised how long you can stay awake for.  Sometime I take cat naps in chairs.  My shift partner stays up real late the night before then gets up really early in the morning and then sleeps all afternoon.

My stomach had a hard time adjusting it a lot better now I would get bad cramps everytime I ate.

I flip flop back and fourth from night to days which is hard.

Fiance use to work 4 10hr night shifts and it was a lot easier on him.

on my last night shift I wake up around noon so I could sleep at a normal time that night.

I just took a job with rotatiing all shifts including graveyard.  I feel like if its the right thing for you and your career to go for it.  It wont be permanent.

When I have to do a late night over night, I would just go to my early classes and then  sleep after classes
