I am a single mom, and a peds nurse. I woek in a peds office. I have friends who make the same as me as a school bus driver. But they don't have to pay child care because they have their kids on the bus, and get to go home with them at the end of the school day. I get off at 5 - sit in at lesat an hour and a half of rush hour traffic to get home with my son no earlyer than 630 and have to rush through homework, dinner, bat and bed. UGH. Why did I bother busting my ass in nursing school again?? Cuz it's not doing much for me now. This is NOTHING against school bus drivers and what they do and their pay - before someone gets mad. I am just discouraged, broke, get no time with my kid, and upset about it all tonight. (and maybe a tad jealous - lol)
Anyone else feel this way??
I busted my butt to get my B.S. in Elementary Education only to graduate right as they are letting go hundreds of teachers. I am working as a preschool teacher at a daycare making minimum wage. However, I love my job and I feel like I have found my second calling for the time being. Things are starting to improve ( I was working crazy hours but now I am on more of a set schedule). I have new goals in my life and I am working on them one day at a time. I got tired of being unhappy and just decided that I was going to make the best of what life has handed me.

Why don't you get a job in a hospital, I know some nurses who make 30.00 and up and get OT and time in a half...At the hospital you could vary your hours as well, maybe do 3 - 12 hour hours then have 4 days free with your son..BSN pays more than RN and LPN .
