Sounds good, momonamission. My spouse also works shifts, so I found it hard. The one thing that did help was that my kids were young enough to still have a fairly early bedtime (between 8:30 and 9:00), so if I needed to finish an assignment, prepare for clinical or study, I had a few hours to do it. The downside to this was that they were also young enough to need childcare, but lots of people work that one out.
Also you don't always have classes for a full day, so if the kids are gone all day, you may be able to get an extra hour or two for homework or rest (lol).
You will find your own way that works for you. Best of luck. :)
