Home health aides can often write their own schedule. This is one nursing assistant job that will enable you to choose what hours you are available to work.
There are instances in which a home health aide is responsible for morning care and nothing more. It will allow the aide to take care of one or several patients and have the remainder of the day off to take care of personal needs.
Working with a home health agency will also allow the aide to choose what days to work. A nursing assistant job that allows you to pick and choose your scheduling is not as difficult to find as one may think. It may take some initial legwork, but it will be worth it in the long run.
Often a nursing assistant job is in place strictly to allow the aide to further their education. Day classes may require them to work evenings. Evening classes may require them to work days or nights. Whichever reason applies, many companies will allow the aide to further their education and become an integral part of the nursing staff. It is no secret that an LPN makes more money in a variety of healthcare settings.
