I suggest that patient care services give all inpatient nursing staff the option to work 6 twelve hours shifts equaling a 72 hour pay period instead of working 10 eight hours shifts equaling an 80 hour pay period. This would save on gas, and save the VA tons money . This move would bring the VA in step with all other Health care facilities in the area. You would have happier nurses and this would reflect in the care that they provide to our vets.
