You have to do nights at some point during a nursing degree. If you're on a ward or nursing home placement, you're likely to be expected to do nights at some point during the placement, regardless of which year you're in.

That's only an option post qualifying. NMC requirements state that student nurses (and probably midwives too) must have experience of 24 hour care in their placements over the course of their degree - this, therefore, includes nights at some point in the 3 years. Whatever job they end up in post qualifying determines whether or not they'll go on to do nights regularly.

As a student nurse you are expected to work nightshifts/weekends as well as dayshift.
You usually work same shifts your supervisor/mentor is working so if she doing nightshifts then you'll do this usually, you must do xx hours of nightshifts throughout your 3 years as a student nurse as per NMC regulations.

I did nightshifts as a student midwife as it was part of the requirements of the course. I'm now a registered midwife mentoring students and they unfortunately do same shifts as I do.
