I would assume the days rotate and you work primarily second shift, but have to be available to cover other shifts when needed.

I’m not entirely sure, but I would think your shift (second) would be pretty set, and your days (including weekends) would be rotating.

I would pm helenberrycrunch, she worked second shift at a hospital as does tobe.  I would think that it meant that you rotate days off.  Something like work 4 days 3 days off 12 hour shifts, that is how I have always seen that, but that could be totally wrong.  There should be something on their website that has all the definitions.

@Eva Peron: No problem. I have been a nurse for 6 years and that is what it has meant for my job.

@Eva Peron: I am a nurse in a cardiac ICU. I started out as a CNA, then an LPN, and now a RN. What is the job you applied for?

I am an RN. Here “second shift” means afternoons or evenings, usually starting at 3 or 4 pm till 11 pm or midnight. The “rotating ” part means that your work days change as you go through the rotation. It depends on the length of the rotation how often that happens. The rotation can be anywhere from 2 to 15-16 weeks long.

I used to work shifts and was two days two graveyards four off rotating shifts meaning your days shifted forward one each week. I would imagine yours means something similar as far as days you work but you only work probably afternoons.

@Eva Peron:  That’s how it is here. You might work 4 shift on, 4 shifts off, 3 shifts on , 2 shifts off , 5 shifts on then 3  off. That would be a 3 week rotation. It would repeat 17 times per year.
