Paula’s Answer

From my experience, a nurse's shift is 12 hours long 3 days out of the week with 4 days off. Being full-time would amount to a 36-hour workweek if you only work those hours. Some hospitals offer their employees overtime shifts, but it depends on the place you work. You can also work part-time which in which the hours would vary. I hope this helps. Good luck!

Hi Abigale!

I've been a nurse at a Children's hospital for 2 years now and from my experience, nurses work a 36 hours/week schedule with 3 twelve-hour shifts per week. The shift is either Day (7am-7:30pm) or Night (7pm-7:30am). When you apply to a RN position, the hours are usually specified in the job description.

Good luck on your nursing journey!
