      Are you gonna open your own practice? I think as a surgeon it's the quickest way to free yourself from the hospital israelite and make your own schedule/work processes.

      You can just save for a commercial real estate location and basically open it in association or hiring a few nurses and staff, maybe even another doctor/surgeon/specialist so you can one-stop-shop the process for client.

        out of all the high-paying professions, anesthesia is the one I have the least respect for. You whole profession should have been outsourced to a computer program decades ago, but it wasn't because of typical anticompetitive doctor bullshit. Even if it wasn't you should still have hordes of people trying to do the basic arithmetic shit you call your job, except you don't because of gatekeeping.

    I've worked night shifts and while it mostly sucks, you can make the most of it. You'll probably have a lot of free time at work so use it to study, read, spend it on your hobbies, don't let that time go to waste. Last time I had a night shift I basically got paid to play nintendo switch. In the past, I used them to study, learn to draw, write, got a ton of progress done as I was getting paid. It was very productive and helped me a lot to move forward.

        If you're working a night shift that is basically a day shift at night you ought to look for a better job.
        Sure being broke sucks and the experience is nice for the cv, but actively look for a better shift if you don't wanna frick yourself up.
        Putting yourself on a timer is a good habit for shit gigs. Make a realistic schedule, say "if I dont find a better job in three months I'll quit this" or whatever time frame is realistic and feasible, and stick to it.

      Hourly workers get paid overtime either after going over 8 hours in a single shift, or 40 hours for a pay period
      Overtime pay varies but most people make 1.5x their hourly wage, although it is taxed at a higher rate which is pants-on-head moronic

      you get overtime but most states and jobs wont give it to you on a hours-in-a-day basis and only hours-in-a-week basis, so only after 40 hours a week is there overtime. super shitty for part time jobs who can make you work 8+ hrs a day at no extra hourly increase

    Will you be working with nurses? If so, the hours are the least of your worries. I've seen the transformation in new grads and while the hours, working weekends/holidays, and the actual job itself is enough to stress anyone out, it's ending up on the nursing staff's shit list that destroys body, mind and soul.

      Just don't be a dismissive dipshit ignoring real problems in your patients and you'll be fine. Lots of nurses are dumb, take 2 seconds to nicely educate and explain your rationale and they'll all talk about how nice you are and bend over backwards to help you out.

      The truth is modern hospitalists mostly were near the bottom of their class and spend literal single digit minutes with most patients each day. Nurses are your eyes and ears 99% of the time because you aren't learning shit asking most of these clueless patients how they're feeling at 8 AM when they're half demented and still basically asleep. They're gonna know your patient is hypercapnic or septic AF long before you do and allow you to head off issues before they really start to suck your time and energy. If you're an butthole timid or dumb nurses won't want to contact you until things are truly fricked and they have no choice.

                I'm aware and am as vulnerable to it as anyone else. It should be obvious that I'm not knowledgeable in depth on much of anything. I tried to get the point across that I didn't have a set hobby or passion, but I liked to do lots of different things. The bigger issue for me is, again, sticking with it.

                what specific bachelor of science did you graduate with?

                Agricultural science, because I went to a small school. I tried to get into a more specific program for environmental science at first, but that wasn't offered. I also considered switching back into nuclear engineering like I originally intended to, but chickened out for fear of wasting student aid. Regret my spaghet? Dunno yet. And yes, I fiddled around with that as a teenager too, and it's a topic I still care about to some extent.

                Here's the computer. I had to modify some Nvidia drivers for the graphics card and rewrite a portion of the rtl 802.11a wifi dongle's open source driver for it to be functional on my shitbox.

                That said, what you say isn't wrong. There's tension from being simultaneously lauded for ease of basic efforts anyone can do and beaten into the ground by basically everyone while growing up. Still trying to get past it. You should see the rest of my family; I'm trying to be better than them for a reason. Always good on paper with nothing to show for it, it sucks.

                I'm 22. Graduated a year ago. I don't want to be a stuck up dumbass for the rest of my life. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, I've been praised for what should be simple tasks others seem to fail at, and it's contributing to this problem. I'm failing at life, despite seemingly being "good" at what I do. I don't need approval, I need answers God damn it.
                Before you ask, yes I was raised by a single father who has the same issues, but to a worse degree. Retired from ZOG with disability, out in a trailer, doing frick all.
                I know this isn't/adv/ but I trust you Black folk to be honest; you've helped me this far.

                you had me worried you were in your 30s, if your 22 with a stem degree you're more than fine. If you are interested in computers consider getting some IT certifications. COMPTIA, CISCO etc. you've realized at 22 what most people don't realize till they're in their 30s. last thing you want to be is a dude at college in his 30s.

                I tried being honest and you ignored it. Shut the frick up about how good/smart you are. Nobody cares and talk is cheap. You can tell everyone about how quick you pick things up and how easy things are to learn, which may or may not be true, but that doesnt matter unless you actually do something. Deep dive into one fricking thing. You may not love it. You may not even like it. But becoming an expert at literally anything means you can earn a living. That could mean being an astrophysicist or digging fricking wells. Once you can earn a living wage you can pursue shit you actually want to do. Whether that's one thing or a variety.

                I was the same way. I never studied. I never did homework. I got a 32 on my act without trying. School was very easy for me. But i didn't actually apply myself and stick with anything and become an expert. I learned minute knowledge about a variety of things and never pursued a single one. After maturing and realizing I'm not a genius, I stuck with something and have earned a living wage. Hell, after my latest raise I'm considered middle class now. I may not love my job but it gives me the chance to do what I want outside of it.

                Thanks for being honest. This is what I was looking for, and what I was thinking. My priorities are ROI and burnout avoidance (I just want to lift and cook), so I'll see what I can do. A few self-assessments are what pointed me to medicine to begin with, so I'll probably stick with that. My peers haven't said anything like this and I'd imagine it's because they want to be polite.

                I can write a meta analysis but I'm not entirely sure how to stick with something unless I'm tied to it. I got my degree because I said frick it we ball and held on. I didn't say I'm the best at everything, I said it wasn't hard to learn once I'm at something. I just don't find it in me to stick with it beyond, say, a few months usually.

                I'm aware and am as vulnerable to it as anyone else. It should be obvious that I'm not knowledgeable in depth on much of anything. I tried to get the point across that I didn't have a set hobby or passion, but I liked to do lots of different things. The bigger issue for me is, again, sticking with it.

                Agricultural science, because I went to a small school. I tried to get into a more specific program for environmental science at first, but that wasn't offered. I also considered switching back into nuclear engineering like I originally intended to, but chickened out for fear of wasting student aid. Regret my spaghet? Dunno yet. And yes, I fiddled around with that as a teenager too, and it's a topic I still care about to some extent.

                Here's the computer. I had to modify some Nvidia drivers for the graphics card and rewrite a portion of the rtl 802.11a wifi dongle's open source driver for it to be functional on my shitbox.

                You can call it a meme degree, I was growing shit, grew peyote and some other fun stuff during college as a practice point. I have a farm to develop so I do have use for this, but I need to make a decent amount of money to invest back into the property.

    I've been workign night shift for almost 10 years now. I had some off years in which I worked day shift and it was horrendous.
    My life, health, it was all shitty.

    As some anon said, just don't be a moron -if you gonna be working at night, configure your life to live at night. If you can't handle don't get a night shift job. It's not for everyone. I've seen many fail, because they go to sleep at 6-7 AM and wake up at 9 AM to take kids to school lmao.

    I personally go to sleep around 6-7, then wake up at 3 PM, have breakfast and then I eat a meal every 3-4 hours. That's it. it is very important to stop thinking of meals in terms of "dinner should be at night". Maybe dinner can be at 4 am. Hell, it should be.

    Also yes, why wouldn't you be able to train? Just work out when you wake up. You can't lift at 3-4 pm?

        Uh, it sounds pretty bad, but it seems to be the same worldwide. I'm not a gringo, but I'm a physiotherapist, and the last professional practices I did were in an ICU, where there were several male nurses and they didn't seem very happy with their job, plus I imagine they must be tired of cleaning shit from 1000-year-old patients

          These are idiots who don't work in the field. Male nurses are overrepresented in leadership positions, make more money, and work in more intellectual areas like ICU/ED than female nurses on average. This is all statistics. Personal experience is that you're broadly assumed to be more competent than your female peers by patients and coworkers alike. It's also nearly impossible not to get laid if that's a goal and you're not a total sperg, and those don't last long in the field.

          American nursing in general is *very* different from the entire rest of the world. We get *much* higher compensation and have a much higher degree of autonomy. I make literally 10x the income of a French or German nurse for example, and 50x that of a Phillipines RN. Almost anything that isn't a surgery or major procedure in a hospital will be done by a nurse.

      I worked as a CNA for a bit before I said frick the medical field. It sucked wiener because we were super understaffed and I had 12-15 patients at a time when I was supposed to have max 8. If I had the proper amount of patients I might have stuck with the medical field. Best part about being the only guy on the floor is that all the nurses and CNAs flirt with you. Worst part about being the only guy on the floor is all the nurses and CNAs flirt with you; meaning uglies, fatties, and girls just flirting with zero real intentions.

      See your mistake was wanting to be a doctor. I almost fricked up and did the same.

      t. RN with a 2 year degree making >200k working 32 hours a week in NorCal. I work with several nurses who made 400k+ working occasional strategic OT to exploit things like 3rd weekend pay, on call (50% pay), double shifts for 2x pay after 12 hours, etc.

      Pic related, a photo someone uploaded straight from my union contract. It's not a secret and it will be ~10% higher numbers by Jan 2026 because it's already contracted. I'm just sharing the knowledge this is an option because had I known this was an option 5 years earlier I'd be a lot better off today. Was a winding road to get here and I wasted some time and money in engineering school along the way before coming to my senses.

      Naturally though the reward for sharing this on IST is crabs insisting you're lying or larping so not sure why I bother.

          Engineers are not respected in western society and the compensation shows that.

      Kek welcome to the internet. I find that most Americans exaggerate how much money they make in real life too, just not to the same extent obviously because that would look moronic. I don’t think I’ve ever met a legitimately rich self made person in their 20s/30s except for my friend who is a surgeon and he still has a lot of debt for his house and loans.

          well same thing on here, people probably arent going to post when they hav really bad aspects of their lives. people are only going to post when they have shit to brag about.
