It’s a Short But Hard Week
A three-day work week doesn’t sound bad at all but when you’re a nurse, things can get crazy stressful. Sure, working only three days a week as most nurses do makes it sound like a dream job but wait until we delve into details. For starters, nurses work long hours, sometimes this means working through the night with minimal rest.
Add to that the kind of work they do, the difficult patients they meet, the unpleasant situations they go through and you will start to understand why they need four days of rest before doing it all over again.
