Hi! I am attending a technical college to become an LPN. I do plan to continue my education after getting established with a job to become a RN. I am curious to how your hours work. One of the reasons I choose the medical field is because of the 3 - 12 hour shifts and get paid for 40 as well as job stability. How many of you work the 3 - 12's and how exactly does that work? What kind of breaks / lunches do you get? I'm sure each facility is different but I would just like to get an idea. How about overtime. I hear in some places you get double pay for ot and some just time and a half. I also hear ot is pretty much unlimited in most places. Thanks for any input on this!
