    Hi everyone,
    I just graduated in May of 2004 as an RN (ADN program) and started working in a hopsital (3-4 12 hour shifts a week). My husband travels alot, so I was having to put my baby in a day care for my whole shift (close to 13 or 14 hours at a time ). He was sick constantly and was always tired and cranky, so I decided to quit after only working 6 weeks. Hospital shifts are soooo crappy!! There are absolutely no shifts that I can work out between my husband and day care! I am so frustrated, I have worked so hard to get my degree! Noone will hire me part time in the hospital because I am new graduate. So.... my question to you guys is.....what kind of job can I get as a new graduate that is NOT in a hospital?????School nurse positions are very few and far between!! If I can't find a job outside of a hospital, I might just give up nursing all together. Help!!!!!!!!
    Have you thought about working an eight hour shift?
