Hoping to be an emergency foster parent while working as RN

  1. I would really like to be an emergency foster parent for teenage girls, but I'm unsure I'd be a great candidate. I'm single, young, and I work long hours as a floor nurse. I think I could help young ladies in ways that I would have really appreciated when I was a teenager, but even if I can be flexible I think I've got a lot going against me. Does this sound like an ill-advised plan as-is? Any advice?

    Why not try Big Sister programs first? I question whether, as a single person and a working nurse, you would be able to provide the close supervision that a teen in the system would need.
