I go back to work in two weeks after my maternity leave. I work a job where in addition to a forty hour work week I am on call one night a week and one weekend every 4-6 weeks.....just not looking forward to it.
Then starting in January I will be trying to work full time and finishing nursing school. I just hope I can keep up with everything and take good care of my DS too....

Wow, that is a lot!

It was very difficult for me to go back to work after maternity leave. It was really tough, but good for my career. Are you just finishing up your BSN?

No I am getting my ADN right now, my DS was a surprise that we didn't know we could have. Going to work on BSN later, going to do that online.

I think it will pretty tough to work 40+ hours a week with a new baby and finish up clinicals for your ADN. Is that the only option you have?

I won't be working all forty hours, my boss is working with me to get enough hours to keep my insurance. My DS was a pleasant surprise that my DH and I never thought was possible and I was in my second semester of nursing school when we found out that we were expecting. He told me that quitting was not an option with school. With his help and both of our families I think we can do this.
