    I worked 4 10s for yrs. At the same time work rotating shift. A week of days and a week of nights the every three weeks had 5 days off I loved it.

    I've worked 12 hour shifts before now and once you get into it its ok.

    I'd do it.

    3 day weekend as well as less time and cost commuting!

    Some of my nurse colleagues work 12-hour shifts; 3 one week, with 4 days off; 4 the next week with 3 days off. Another rotation that is very popular for the 12-hour shift crowd is: 2 days, 2 nights, 5 days off.

    If anyone is interested in information about shift work and scheduling and the challenges that go with it, this site is an excellent resource: www.circadian.com

    I work in a part time position (24 hours/week) and often work my 4 shifts in such a way that I usually get a 6 or 7 day stretch off duty. If I pick up an extra shift on a weekend (Friday nights usually) I can earn some nice OT.

    My college education has been very good to me.

    scully you are a nurse? My wife just graduated from LPN school. 1yr course. It was very difficult on us all. It was a very intense course.

    yes defd, I'm a RN... congrats to your wife!! If she ever wants to transition to RN, it's so worth it! I'm going to send you a PM.

    I do that now. I don't get a 3-day weekend...Saturdays, Sundays and Tuesdays off. It's an office job, though. Not sure if I could do something that was terribly physical for 10 hours a day.

    I've done 12 hour shifts all nights and loved it. Once my body was used to the routine it was great and would do it again
