Yikes, that sounds awful! I don't know what I am going to do if my first RN job is night shift...I'll never make it.
I've never worked call before. When we're holding patients in the ER, we mostly just . . . hold 'em in the ER and try not to let anyone die, at least till 7:35. 8 nights in a row will make your eyes bleeeeed . . . but that paycheck'll be nice!
