Night shifts and sleep patterns

I'm starting a new job this week where I'll be working from 5am to 11am, 5 days a week. I'd like to develop a new sleep pattern where I nap when I get back from work and effectively have to parts to my day divided by sleep. I'm not sure how long I should be sleeping for, though. 2 hours? 5 hours? Any help you could give me would be great.

Re: Night shifts and sleep patterns

You may still sleep at 9pm and get up at 3am. This sleep pattern will be ideal for you.
You would get uninterrupted 6 hours of sleep through this pattern.
If you deprived sleep you may develop sleep disorder.
