Re: pumping at work only 1x in 8hr
yes, consistant pumping should up your supply. I'm a nurse too and I totally understand the only being able to pump once, I do try for 2 times but if nothing else I pump as soon as my shift is over and I've reported (so if I need to stay and chart at least I've pumped). I also keep my pump set up in the break room after my first pump so the second time all I have to do is grab the horns from the fridge, screw on bottles, plug them in and pump quick. That saves a lot of time. I usually pump for 10 min twice. Pump on your days off too, I've started pumping after the morning feeding and started with an oz and now am up to 4-5. That makes for a great freezer stash and has helped me feel better about the days I don't pump so much!
