    I work part time days in the NICU and am going through a divorce and trying to figure out how to sync my work schedule with my son's time with his dad (which is still being negotiated)

    On our unit we work every third weekend and other than that do self scheduling though we have to work a Friday and Monday.

    So was thinking every 3rd weekend working Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, then having 7 days off, then working a Tuesday, Wednesday, then having another 8 days off before doing another long weekend and repeating...

    4 days in a row seems exhausting but I don't want my son to have to move back and forth all the time so clustering my shifts would be better.

    I'm a nursing instructor and have had several students in their 30s and 40s. I was 28 when I became a nurse.

    That sounds accurate for a med-surg nurse.

    I did L&D where you get 1 or 2 patients. It can be frantic in its own way though.

    I work in the NICU now and it's so nice to have 1-3 patients and spend time talking to the families.

    In the OR you only get one patient at a time. Of course you can't really talk to them much..

    If you can get an internship in the NICU as a new grad do it!

    All the new grads hired to my NICU were student externs there.
