I'll try to explain my dilemma without waffling on.
I am a nurse, I currently have a job working in a group home for adults with developmental disabilities. I like the job, it pays enough, it's not stressful at all, however it's mainly admin with limited contact, thus is only moderatly satisfying. Hours are flexible, 8 per day monday to friday.
I have been offered a job in a really good hospital, it would be extremely busy and stressful but very satisfying, career-wise it'd be amazing and would set me up for further study/progression. I'd get paid a bit more. I'd do 3 12 hour shifts per week 7-7.
We have our first baby due any day now; I'm thinking stress/lack of sleep/ect.
Do I stay where I am now (cosy job), or take a chance on a potentially stressful but rewarding new position.
Any advice, particulary from parents of babies, would be greatly appreciated.
