I feel like I have little quality of life. I only work 3-4 12 hr shifts a week, but I have a 2 hr commute tagged on to it. I work every other weekend and get 2 -3 days off in a row between work. I feel like I never see my 6 and 7 year old children. I work days. My husband and I are considering have a 3rd child. So I'm trying to figure out how to cut back my hours so I can stay home (mostly) with the baby and just work per diem or part time. I have student loan debt (like most other people) and some other debt. We have no family nearby to watch a baby and newborn childcare is expensive.
Any ideas what I can do as an RN to still have time w/my children and make some money too?
