I am new here and am looking for some honest info!!
I am 29 years old and considering going back to school to become an RN. I graduated with a degree in Math 7 years ago and am now a stay at home mom. I am really interested in nursing but am worried about the time that it would take away from being with my kids. Is it true that you have to work outrageous hours, tons of overtime and most holidays? This is something I really want to do but don't want to leave my kids short changed in the process. I would love to work in Pediatrics (possibly NICU) but would only want to work part time ( for a while anyway). Would that be possible? Help!!! I truly want to be a nurse but am worried about my time with my kids!!!!
