What is a typical work schedule for a nurse nurse anesthetist?

On a typical work day, how many hours do you usually work in one shift? Are they usually 9-5 hours or is it a spontaneous mix of night shifts and early midnight shifts? How does your work schedule mingle with your everyday lifestyle? Thank you! #nursing #nurse #healthcare #registered-nurses #stem #anesthetist

It depends on the facility and can vary greatly. Some have a set night staff, others require monthly overnight shifts. Most CRNA's work a variety of 8, 10, 12, and 16 hour shifts. Because surgeries usually begin early (0700 - 0800) you are usually in the hospital by 0630-0700 for day shift. Most take a certain amount of overnight call from home.
