Moonlighting: Nurses reveal their side jobs

Nurses may have a good job outlook through 2018…but maybe your budget is a little tight on your nurse’s salary alone. Or perhaps you’re looking for a fun way to relax on the weekends—and make a little extra cash on the side. We asked our Facebook fans what kind of side jobs they have (or have had) to make some extra dough; check out their answers for some inspirations and, occasionally, warnings!

    I work weekends in a behavioral health unit. Mostly in the summer I work for nurses who want days off. I feel as if I have my own business being a registry. Love the flexibilty, and I can say NO whenever I need a rest, or work more when I need the dough!

    I serve as medical consultant/on-screen nurse for various TV shows and movies that film in the area.
