Hi guys, I have 5 kids the youngest are under age 3. Im a new grad nurse and was just offered a job working for a nursing home in my area. My husband makes a fair wage so we are not in need of the extra income. Just wondering if Ishould take the Job. My family think that its too early with my youngest being 7 months. I just graduated a few months back so I'm super excited about starting a nursing career. What do you think I should do. My husband supports me either way.

Yes, I would.
I'd use my degree as quickly as possible. To enjoy my work & make $ for my family.

It's all up to you. I personally, would try to make it part time so I still get to spend a lot of time with my babies. And as they get older move onto full time. But like I said, that's just me.

Ok I'm getting some positive feed back. This is wonderful, I was feeling a little guilty about wanting to leave the kids. My aunt has offered to stay to care for the kids as I transition back. I'm really excited because its really hard to find a job as a new grad. Most employeers want experienced nurses so I'm thinking I should seize the opprotunity.
