12 hour night shifts-school & being a mom

  1. 0
    hi all,
    i have a question...if there are any of you out there that are currently working 12 hour night shifts with children under the age of 5 i would like to hear from you about prioritizing your time. when do you sleep and study and how do you feel when you're are work??
    here is my situation, i am 28, married, with 2 boys 14 months and 2 months possibly switching to a night 12 hour position and hopefully getting accepted to the weekend rn program. :uhoh21: i was just wondering if anyone was in the same boat and how you handle it.
    i may be dropping to partime when i know for sure that i am in the program...
    thanks for the insights!!

    Sorry, not a mom yet but I am in a "traditional" BSN school during the week. Incidentially, I have never heard of a weekend program? Anyway, I am in class with a lady who has a 5 yr old and 3 yr old. After this semester, she will be part-time in the Fall due to this semester. It is hard, long hours with the clinicals. The people who didn't and worked etc, ended up being behind a year due to failing classes, and out more money. NO one else can tell you what u are capable of, but your children also are only young once...
    Hope this helps.
