Technically only a CNA right now, but planning to go for her RN soon.

Right now, she's working some pretty crazy hours. To be fair, she's actually working a second job, but her primary job has her working overnight three or four days a week.

I'm wondering if any spouses of nurses - or nurses themselves - on board can tell me if the hours get better over time or if that's just a 'the way it is' kinda thing.

To be clear, it doesn't cause any friction between us. Nor does it put me off of dating her in any way. Just something I'm wondering.

No comment :lol:

I will say this much: She is the most wonderful, amazing woman I've ever met. And she treats me better than anyone else ever has.

Most nurses I know get burned out fairly quickly due to constant long hours. Depends exactly where she works though. private practice clinic = steady hours

Primary job - small hospital

Second job - hospice

At home - single mom of two teenagers

For the record, she loves her work, but not necessarily her employers.

The hours don't really improve a whole lot, it's usually 10-12 hour shifts with an option of working night shifts or weekend shifts. The weekend shifts and late night shifts usually give out a nice bonus of like 500-1000 a week for just working those shifts though. Just really depends on the hospital your working at.  These are RN hours of course, but the time off "3 days a week usually" Plus the bonus money makes it worth it. lol    If she's planning on becoming an RN, I'd advise her to work at a smaller hospital that needs weekend shifts worked to pick up the bonus so she can quite the other job.

I did one time. But that was just for a few hours on Halloween. I think she was an accountant the next day.

My view of marriage is that if she is happy you will be too.

 

In my opinion it sounds like a nightmare. But I'm also an idiot.
