I used to wait tables, but am trying to get my son (future aspiring nurse) to learn bartending. It has the potential to bring in $200.$300 in cash tips for a double shift and is somewhat congruent with working nights.  Plus, you can do it most places that are near the ocean.

What is chart abstraction and where could I find a position like this?

Basically I read through a chart, pull out certain data points, and it gets aggregated for research purposes. I found my company on linkedin when I was looking for something else. My company is all oncology, and I don't know if my job is typical of that of a chart abstractor as a rule, since most of the jobs I see for this are more helping with converting charts from one EMR to another and don't require clinical experience.

I believe that many bartenders would actually out earn strippers while keeping a bit more of their dignity.

You're working under the assumption that strippers have less dignity. That hasn't been the case with many of the strippers that I've friended over the years. And my personal opinion as a very sex-positive, body-positive person is that being a stripper doesn't automatically take away your dignity. But that's just based on my personal view, not on any experience as my original comment was made purely in jest. In regards to out earning as a bartender versus a stripper, I think that is entirely possible but entirely depends on the stripper and the bartender and for both of them, the location.

I have an investment property that I rent out....however this last 6 months it has cost me money instead of earning.  Thankfully negative gearing is applicable where I live and EOFY was 30 June....

 

I have done agency work on weekends when I did a quality consultant job but it was always one hospital on the other side of the city that requested me and it was a 2hr drive to get there.

 

I have also done policy reviews for non profit organisations who are involved in providing community services.

Side hustle should be my middle name! About 10 years ago I started making candles. Then I added soap and bath and body products. I found out that I don't have the requirements to legally make body products from home, so I just do that for family now. While I still have a full time job, my hubby and I started a holistic wellness center about 3 months ago. I sell my soap, offer nursing consultation, do meditation and my husband is a life coach and teaches mindfulness. 

Hopefully this side hustle will be the main hustle soon!

I kicked around the idea of photography on the weekends or days off, but the market is oversaturated with photographers. So my side hustle looks like it's going to be overtime. I need to get some control over my student loans.

I recently accepted my first job offer at a hospital in a nearby city, busy med-surg floor. If everything goes well (Have NCLEX this Monday) I'd be starting near the end of August. After 8 week orientation, It would be the usual three 12 hour overnight shifts. I'm debating whether I should totally leave my current job (absolutely unrelated to health care) of almost 9 years or maybe stay 1-2 days a week until I am settled (kind of a "just in case" thing).

I'd also be starting my online BSN program shortly after the new job. Kinda overwhelmed thinking about it.

I guess the question for me would be "just in case" what? Are you worried that you won't like the job? Won't pass the NCLEX? Won't do well and get let go? 

As a new grad all of these can go through your mind. Nothing wrong with hanging on to your old job until you feel secure about your nursing job, but you will be learning a lot and adjusting to 12 hour shifts... It might feel like a lot, but if keeping both is too much, you can always completely leave the old job. 

Do what feels right to you, but most likely, you do fine, get your license and things will be ok in the new job. Feeling secure is important, so try it if it helps you feel better.
