I'm an RN and I really enjoy it. It's very flexible for having a family. Although I am fairly lucky to not need to use Childcare. I currently have 2 jobs (both casual) one in aged care doing therapy with residents who have chronic pain I work 4 hours a week and can pick any days (non-fri) I like some days I do it all in one go when hubby gets home and others I do an hour or 2 each night. The second job is up at our local hospital just casual so work between emergency and medical unit. I just give my availability and work weekends or some days I start at 4:30 when hubby gets home if they need someone during the week.
I am about to start a 3rd job one day a week at a GP practice I will put my girls into Childcare one day for this and it's 9-5 work. Very excited about this as community and one on one work is what I've always wanted to do.
You could do your EENs first which is a diploma (18months) I did mine first and it helped me to know for sure I loved it. Then if you go on to study your RN you receive credit for it.

I'm a Childbirth Educator. I taught Science (11 & 12 Biology), SOSE and English for 5 years before realising that high school teaching wasn't for me. I used my maternity leave to study Childbirth Education and have been happy ever since! I absolutely love my job!

I'm a youth worker currently working in a housing program for 16-25 yr olds. I work for a charity, and our funding comes from the Government, but previous to this job I was always employed by a local council in the areas of child protection or youth services. Current job is part time, 20 hrs a week over three days so kids don't have to go to daycare full time.
I've always been a youth worker and I love it.

I am studying because I want to be qualified and move up into Special Education, which a Cert IV would put me head and shoulders over other candidates for the job.
A qualification also equals a higher pay level. There are TA's at our school who have been there for years with no formal quals, but heaps of experience.

The money is pretty good. I get around $33 an hour part time in QLD. More when I was in the ACT.
I would say your plan of a cert 3 then getting some experience would be a good one, then you can always do some more study and go for different roles when you know what type of youth work you'd like to do because it's so varied :-)
