12 hour night shifts very busy for the first 5 hours and last 2 hours, then just busy in between.
Researched and learned about sleep and sleep disorders
Management often not helpful as they new very little about the nightly running of the unit
Did not work with co-workers, but needed to hand over them at end of my 6 nights on. Needed to be good at communication to achieve a harmonious work place
Working on my own and length of shift
Getting to know a wide variety of people and being able to genuinely make a big difference to how they feel on a daily basis, very rewarding position
Long shifts, solitude
