3 *12

This is another reason why you want to be a nurse.  Many many nurses have the option of working a compressed schedule,  so basically they work three 12 hour shifts  and then that it.  That is full time.   So say you worked Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, well then you have the rest of the week off.  So if you don't want your life to revolve around that look at all those other days you have to do whatever else you want.  You can paint, sew, sleep, take a class, and pursue any other interest you might have.

Now as a disclaimer, nursing jobs are very diverse and not all nursing jobs will have this option, but because the jobs are diverse so are the scheduling options, so if you want to work at night (that's what I plan on doing), on the weekend, get overtime, work shorter shifts more often etc... all of these are options.  Seems pretty awesome to me.

 So if you are not sure what you want to do, why not become a nurse and support yourself while you figure it out on the other 4 days of the week.
