New, possibly going to do CNA or Phlebotomy

  1. Hi I am new and live in Oklahoma. This site looks to have a wealth of information and am happy to have found it. Since I am new I am not sure where to post this question, so I thought I might as well post it here. If you think it has a better place elsewhere, let me know and I will post it there.

    Do cna's and/or phlebotomist get to work third shift?

    The deal is I have 2 kids, both not in school. I am currently working as a preschool teacher 2 days a week and it is not paying the bills at all. My husband and I discussed that maybe I could do phlebotomy or cna and work overnight from 11 p.m.-7 a.m., but I didn't know if that was offered. I am not sure when I would get to sleep with two kids awake during the day. Daycare is so high and I would have to make $12 an hour just to make a little profit on the day shift. I have read that phlebotomist make around $25,000 a year here, but don't know how "for real" that is. Anyway, if anyone knows or has experience working graveyard with 2 small kids please let me know. I am still heavily considering this. Thanks in advance!

    I think I will try to find a place to post this too as alot of you may not view the new pwople forum. Thanks
