Mom of 3 Little ones/ ICU Nurse

  1. Hello,
    I'm new to this group. I'm a mom of 3 young children ages 31/2yrs, 2yrs, and 6 mos. I stopped working 1 year ago because of pregnancy and lack of sleep. I still suffer from insomnia. It seems like most of the nurses I've worked with were moms but I don't seem to be able to juggle both. I am able to stay at home for now but I don't want to lose my career. I was thinking of trying to take some type of online refresher coarse for ICU or just study on my own. I won't start working until things calm down at home. It just gets so busy. I also need a good night sleep because I am afraid to make any type of mistake. I just wanted some advice from anyone who's been there.

    Hi Jenn and welcome. Don't have small children anymore but if you are happy being a SAHM go for it.

    Good luck. I have insomnia from time time, but no kids.
