I am about to start my last year of nursing school. I also work full time and have two kids age 4 and 6. It has been ok this last couple of years, but recently they have decided to change our hour from 12 hour shifts to 10 hour shift. This means another day at work every other week. I already spend soooo much time away from my kids. I want to go part time, but we need the money and I would also like to try and get a job at this hospital as a nurse when I am done and don't want to burn any bridges. It is the only hospital in the town that I live in.
This next semester I am not going to see my children hardly at all due to class time, clinical schedule, and work. I feel torn between "keeping my foot in the door" so to speak and spending some time with my kids. A part of me says that they will survive and it is only 10 more months and it will be better by December. Please provide me with some guidance.
