New grads don't work days. Unless you're prepared to spend time away from your children at length including holidays and bedtime, AND you have money for childcare for that time, I wouldn't recommend it. I'm a single mom, and nursing has been hard for me for those reasons. Also, yes, nursing is rewarding, but it's not like volunteering. It truly is work, and extremely stressful work at that.
What does make nursing worth it for me is the pay (not rich lol, but making better money than jobs with comparable education) and knowing I have a career ahead of me, and I don't have to stay where I am if I don't want to. Also, I'm extroverted and enjoy the energy I get from my coworkers and patients.
Hope this helps!
