    Taking time away from career-help!

    I posted under nursing career, but had no response so maybe someone can offer some help here. I am a mother of 3 young kids ( 2 yo twins and a 5 yo). I currently work part-time during the day for a state health dept. Even though it's part-time, I am struggling to be the mom I need to be and keep my sanity! I really am leaning towards taking some time away from my career, but question over and over as to whether I will regret this years down the road. I did take about a year and a half off while I was pg with twins, but then my past job offered me the part-time opportunity a year ago. At the time, I took it b/c my husband was laid off and he assisted with the childcare and I thought it would be great to get back into the workforce. Fast forward to now and he works full-time, kids are in daycare and the job is not what I thought it was. I wouldn't mind a nursing job during the evenings or even weekends, but nothing is turning up. So, will I regret this? I'm not sure how I would even keep up my license unless something pops up as I would continue looking. Thanks for any insight you can offer!

    MSN MPH

    I hold a MSN/MPH. It cost a lot of $$$ and the job I am currently in only requires the MNS part. While I received an excellent education, I can't say I would do it again. I work in state government and the pay is not great! So, if you were to go back for one or the other, I would definitely make sure it was the MSN so you have more options!
