I am going into business for myself. I am getting my large group family license (12 kids per shift) and I am going to be open 24 hours. This daycare will be geared primarily towards my brothers and sisters in the trenches: the CNAs, nurses, rad techs who have to work non-traditional schedules.
I am tired of the drama, the low pay (do you realize I will make more weekly than I do now if I only got 6 kids?!) and the schedule woes. It is so hard having little kids and working nights :trout: . I will maintain my nursing license and remain per diem at my facility. I will also continue my education towards my RN, more to get 'er done than anything else. Heck, working long term care dementia is virtually the same as doing child care....an I REALLY love children!
