Help me figure out a schedule! I share a car and childcare duties with my husband and he works 5:15am-2pm (I stay home and watch kiddo while he works, he stays home and watches kiddo while I work/go to school). I need to take a class in the fall that is offered throughout the day and into the evening. I also need to get a job, as a CNA/patient care assistant/etc. Available job openings have regular shift hours of 7 am-7 pm, 3 pm-11pm, or 7pm-7 am.

If I did a morning class I would have the same availability for work everyday (3pm-11pm and 7pm-7am). If I chose the night class, I would have open availability for any shift on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday but no availability on Mondays and Wednesdays.

I've never worked shift work before or in the medical setting so I don't know how willing employers are to work around lack of availability on days I'll have class. Taking a morning class would be inconvenient but doable, as I could take my husband to work and go to class in the early morning while my sister watches my son.

Should I take a morning class or a night class?
