I'm stuck with what's turning out to be a really tough decision. I'm working on my Bachelor's in medical laboratory science. The lab that I want to work in when I graduate is hiring. Its not a tech job, basically I would be an assistant, replacing supplies, answering phones, etc. I would get benefits (health insurance, dental, vision, free health clinic for employees and their spouses and kids, 401k, etc.) AND I would get 75-100% tuition reimbursement for my major!!!! Its just too great an opportunity to pass up. Except: Its a full time, 40hrs a week position. The hours are night, so I would be there sometimes until 2am, but its 7days on/ 7 days off. I currently do ALL my studying at night when DH is home to entertain DS.
Can I do this? DH works full time (and sometimes overtime) and we have a 3 year old son with no one that can help with babysitting.
I don't want to get overwhelmed in school and lose motivation. If I don't take this job though, I'm passing up great health insurance (we are uninsured currently) and the tuition reimbursement.
Working and student moms: Tell me I can do this. How do you do it?
