Second time mom woes

Nurses Stress 101


Hello y’all ? 

I’m struggling here.. mentally and emotionally.. mid pandemic we were let go from a cushy home health job that I really liked it paid well and had amazing flexibility.. but the company could no more and we were laid off.. worse is I was pregnant at the time (can you imagine the stress?) after about two months I found part time which them turned into full time employment as a nurse but mon- fri( great Pay commute is less than 7 mins) it’s high stress which sometimes kicks my *** especially since I go every damn day.. except for weekends.. I had my baby and this work place was actually very toxic during the last month ( I actually had HR confront me about resigning from my job since my OB appointments were leading to staffing issues) I could have sued!! And I should have!! I’d be way happier now.. 

but I needed a steady paycheck.. but Im miserable y’all.. I’m stressed and exhausted.. I’m pushed to my limits..I quit school since that was too much.. I quit my PRN job 

Im still miserable.. what could I do that is flexible and mommy friendly? I also do not wanna work holidays.. my kids come first on those days.. mainly Christmas and thanksgiving I don’t care so much about the other holidays

Look for a position in Day Surgery or Pre Admission Testing. They are usually closed on weekends and holidays. Good luck!

Have you thought about telehealth or something along those lines? Pay isn't great (from what I've observed), but many companies offer a work from home situation.
