It may go against your doctor’s order if there is lifting involved in the night shift position, but it has nothing to do with the nurse practice act. My department has a ‘no light duty’ policy, so you can either work or you can’t. Good luck, but as far as I can tell your license isn’t in jeopardy because you are working, unless the job description includes a physical task that you can not perform … if that is the case, remind your boss about any physical limitations you have and make sure they staff accordingly.
