"School hours" possible?

  1. I am looking into nursing but have three children. My husband is gone every other week, and we have no family or anything around us. Especially as a new graduate, would there be any certain areas of nursing that may give me a "day job" option? Part time? During my kids school hours? Would a hospital even think of having someone work every other week? I CANNOT work a 2nd or 3rd shift on the weeks my husband is out of town. It would not work out with a daycare....or financially. Help!! Any suggestions? Should I just look into another career field?

    One of the great options of nursing is the flexability, my husband travels all week and I also have 3 small kids. I worked at one hospital that had a part time shift of every other weekend and one day a week. Also you can often job share, I had couple friends that shared their kids and hours working opposite ***** to help one another. there are also many types of shifts, 8hr 12hr part time full time and per diem (working as needed) I think you will find nursing very flexible play it by ear and see where you get, takes a long time to finish up schooling so who knows by the time you finish your circumstances might change.
