I know this is early, as I'm just starting my RN program, however I'm wondering if it is even possible to find a job that does not require overnights or early morning starts right out of nursing school? I am absolutely not opposed to working these shifts eventually, but my kids are too young to get themselves to school, etc. I would actually LOVE to work in the ER, but my husband's job requirements/hours and my kids ages prohibit me from pursuing that right out of nursing school.
My husband is an aortic aneurysm device rep, so his job is basically on-call all the time. Not only does he have scheduled surgeries in the OR that can start very early, but if there is ever a rupture, he has to drop everything and go to whatever hospital he is asked to in a very large metropolitan area, day or night. Due to my husband's job responsibilities, it restricts my ability to work outside of regular hours until my kids are able to handle being home alone (will probably be a solid 5 or 6 years before that is possible since they are in Kindergarten and 2nd grade now). I don't want to look like a "princess" right out of school, but I'm worried I will have a hard time finding a job since it seems like most nursing jobs require night shifts or 6am starts?? Any advice or areas of specialty that I can focus on early to help me get to work after school would be great! I am doing a BSN program.
