Amy, not sure where u work, but unless u work in a facility that doesn’t work holidays, or doesn’t have patients 24/7, someone has to work. I work 12 hr. nights, and dont mind helping out, but its rough when I work several shifts in a row over a holiday. It leaves no family time when I have to get sleep to be safe to go back in again. I have family in health care as well, so as long as we can try to work the same holidays, we may actually see each other.
