I am thinking of leaving the hospital and going into home health, whether it be home visits or shift work. My only hesitation is that I need benefits and I would be required to work FT, which is 36 hr./week in HH.
That will be an adjustment for me because I'm currently working w/e option, so I work 24 hrs/week but get paid for 36, plus benefits. I do have a child in school, so it's been good, but I am so sick of working EVERY weekend. i would like a more "normal" schedule, but I am nervous about changing.
How does the 36 hr work week work out for you, if you do home visits or shift work? Ideally, I'd like to get off of work by the time he gets home from school. Is this do-able with having to work FT status in HH??
