    Thank you for your replies. I did a search and found alot of info on working nights, but not alot about with small kids. maybe I didn't go back far enough. Anyway I called a place to try and get some assistance with the class and they said here employers want a phlebotomist ti have cna too, that they cannot stand on their own, although a cna can stand on their own, because they are in such demand. So she said I should enroll in both. I do not know what I am going to do yet though. I may look into the evening and weekend lpn class.

    Thanks again!

    Thank you.

    Has anyone worked the night shift with two kids and their dad works day shift? I am thinking maybe I could work 11-7 stay awake until around 1 (when 1 yr old takes a nap) and leave my 3 yr old in the room while I try to sleep or nap (the word is try). She will watch tv. in bed. 1 yr old takes a 1-2 hour nap then likes to watch tv too. Dad gets home at 5 and then maybe I can sleep til 10. Does this sound preposterous?

    Yes, I have but I am not sure if I can go to college right now, at least not full time. It is an option later. I kind of need something I can do soon to help us financially. I am leaning more toward phlebotomy. What I really want to do is ultrasound, but again that requires about 4 yrs of school and not much of the 1 year I have under my belt transfers. I thought maybe I could get in with a hospital doing (first choice) of phlebotomy or (second) cna and go from there doing school part time or waiting until my kids go to school and going full time then. Maybe after I get in with a hospital I will see what I really want to do. The hospitals here pay tuition for nursing if you sign a contract to work for them 2 years after you graduate.

    Thanks for the info on phlebotomy and cna's. I kind of figured cna's had to work around the clock. I think from what I have seen the schooling for cna is longer than phlebotomy. I would like to go to a tech school here 2 nights a week for phlebotomy and be done in April. The cna lasts the same amount of time at this particular school, but it is 4 nights week. Since my husband works two of those nights, I would have to get a sitter or drive them to my mom's house.

    Hi I am new and live in Oklahoma. This site looks to have a wealth of information and am happy to have found it. Since I am new I am not sure where to post this question, so I thought I might as well post it here. If you think it has a better place elsewhere, let me know and I will post it there.

    Do cna's and/or phlebotomist get to work third shift?

    The deal is I have 2 kids, both not in school. I am currently working as a preschool teacher 2 days a week and it is not paying the bills at all. My husband and I discussed that maybe I could do phlebotomy or cna and work overnight from 11 p.m.-7 a.m., but I didn't know if that was offered. I am not sure when I would get to sleep with two kids awake during the day. Daycare is so high and I would have to make $12 an hour just to make a little profit on the day shift. I have read that phlebotomist make around $25,000 a year here, but don't know how "for real" that is. Anyway, if anyone knows or has experience working graveyard with 2 small kids please let me know. I am still heavily considering this. Thanks in advance!
