[QUOTE=lgreen]I have been accepted to nursing school in the fall. This is a career change (although I haven't worked in quite awhile. My question is this. I have a great life-style. I am able to stay home with my three kids and we travel alot. Money isn't an issue. I have been interested in nursing, volunteered in a hospital and loved the pace and the environment. I think I will be satisfied with the job, but am worried about losing the freedom that I have now. Is it possible to find work that allows one to work say, one shift per week? Are there satisfying volunteer opportunities if one decided to use their skills in that cap
ive in a major metro area. Any insights appreciated.[/QU
When you first graduate for the first year out of school I would recommend
working at least part-time. Once you feel comfortable working independently
as a nurse and have your skills down, then you can work prn with confidence.
Employers love prn nurses because they usually do not pay for benefits or
bonus pay. Good luck with school and your career.
