Looking for work in third trimester

Hi mums, my family and I just recently relocated back to our home state after three years for work related reasons for my husband. I left my job of two yrs behind. I am currently 30 weeks and am considering looking for work. I am a licensed practical nurse. Wanting to work a few night shifts a week. I'm sure I'd raise a few brows during an interview but, honest opinion, do you ladies think it's a worth a try?

If you need money immediately then  I say it is worth the try. But if it's something that can wait then look for jobs and book mark the ones you like and apply after baby comes your so close to the end of pregnancy a little added stress May not be the best but in the end it's whatever you are comfortable doing

Maxim Home Health care is a Nation wide company. Being home health you can make your own schedule pretty much and you have ONE patient instead of 30+
Patients are infant to adolescent so they can find a Patient that is okay for you to transfer/lift etc being 30 weeks along!
I've been working with Maxim for 2yrs out of my 4yrs as an LVN, and transfered States with them. I'm 6 weeks along myself due in February and they are more than accommodating.
If you need to work this could be a quick hire on and PRN position until you are ready to return to work full time. And it's easy care easy nursing for some one who is pregnant :)

Patients are infant to adolescent. Trach/vent, gtube feeds, seizures. One on one care. Most rewarding job I've had as a Nurse.

I've heard of them. I'll give them a call. Thank you!
They are a good company. I've enjoyed working out of the Dallas TX office for a yr and now Colorado Springs office for a yr. Great company, good benefits, flexible schedule/you can make your schedule (days, nights, 8-10-or 12hr shifts, you pick the days you want to work and they will staff you, they fully train you on the kiddo your working with before sending you to a home)

Taking care of these precious babies one on one and seeing their progress is very rewarding, and it's not so stressful since you are one and one. I make more money than working at a facility or hospital and I'm not so burnt out. Weekly pay.

I hope this works for you!
