Every Other Holiday
In this schedule, the child lives with the custodial parent during the week and visits the non-custodial parent on alternating weekends and for one evening visit during the week. For this arrangement, the custodial parent has 84% of the time with the child and the non-custodial parent has 16% of the time, not including holidays or special days. This schedule is a common one in situations where one parent has sole physical custody and the other parent gets visitation.
Every Other Holiday
This is similar to the schedule above, but the evening visit is an overnight visit. The non-custodial parent has visitation every other weekend and one overnight visit a week. This gives the non-custodial parent a little more time than the previous schedule. The custodial parent has 71% of the time and the non-custodial parent has 29%, not including holidays or special days.
In this arrangement, the child spends every other weekend with the non-custodial parent but the weekend goes until Monday evening. The time-share percentage for the custodial parent is 79% and the time-share for the non-custodial parent is 21%, not including holidays or special days.

I will be graduating nursing school next year, and I am trying to figure out what I want to do. I was wondering what kind of positions there are out there that I do not have to work every other weekend, and a holiday. I am a huge family person, and being with my family at night and holidays is very important to me! I do not want to make a lousy salary as well.
Unless you work in a clinic you're most likely gonna be scheduled EOWE and holidays or if you work thru an agency but honestly you won't get any hours if you turn down weekends and holidays and you won't make a ton in a clinic.
I've only had two jobs that didn't require every other weekend and holiday. The first one was at a doctor's office and the pay was only $15 per hour. We did have 1 Saturday morning every 8 weeks to answer phones and do phone triage while the doctor's rounded at the hospital. The second one was as a Nurse Manager. While I didn't have to work every other weekend and holiday, I was on call 24/7 and if we didn't have enough staff, guess who had to go in. The pay was great when looking at just the pay, but when I did the math to see what I was making per hour for all the hours I was putting in, it was less than I was making on the floor.
The rest of my jobs have been in the hospital and required every other weekend and holiday. Even with the requirements, I still have been able to spend time with my family. One thing I learned about holidays is that they can be celebrated anytime.
There's clinic nursing, but "sometimes" you need acute care experience before you can hired in a clinic. Also, you may be able to find a hospital unit that does every third weekend. However, health care is not a bank, and you really needed to think about this before you got involved in nursing. Why should they accommodate you, a new grad with little to offer, over multi-year veterans who don't want to work EOW and holidays?
I work Mon-Fri, get most holidays off and am well compensated, but you aren't yet qualified for my position. I got my experience working a few years of weekends and holidays, and fortunately only several months of nights.
I work in a large teaching hospital where a lot of the nurses on my unit are in school for something:MSN, NP etc. Them and the people who prefer the weekend differentials (extra $10/hr) sign up for most of the weekend shifts and as a result, a lot of nurses can get by without having to work many weekends at all. This is always a shifting situation as staff leaves, but in practice, you might not always have to do every other weekend.
As a new grad, you will not have the first pick of most available jobs, so a temporary situation might have you working nights, weekends and holidays. So if you hold out for a job with lots of specifics, finding that first job might take awhile.
I work 2 12s and 2 8s as an ED nurse; usually 1-2 days off in between; I work technically every other week end, but it comes out to every other one weekend day, instead of the whole weekend; we also get to pick one Summer holiday and one Winter holiday, but that includes the day before and the holiday, and we get the preferences to work; which usually works out.
You can still celebrate with your family if you work an off shift. I still work weekends and holidays and am able to have Christmas dinner, and other holiday meals with my family. Another thing is you can have Christmas dinner, for example, on the 23rd if you're working the holiday.
Wayne received 20 pages of script he needed to learn about four days before filming began in April near his current home in the Nashville area. He said that learning the lines was the most challenging part, so he received help from an actor friend and practiced the lines every day. He likened the process to learning to play guitar:
Tracie (Schuyler Fisk) and Rick (David Clayton Rogers - Pregnancy Pact) were once very much in love, got married and started a family. But things have recently gone wrong and they find themselves going their separate ways, alternating who has their daughters, Harper (Abby James Witherspoon) and Ava (Skylar Olivia Flanagan), for the holidays. With Christmas coming Harper and Ava have a joint wish, they want to spend Christmas not only at Tracie's family's farmhouse but as a family with their father there as well. Despite it being difficult Tracie and Rick agree to a temporary Christmas reunion although that means they will also have to deal with her disapproving parents, her siblings and also her parent's gossipy friends. But maybe in the chaos of Christmas Tracie and Rick will remember what they loved about each other before it all went wrong.
"A Holiday Wish come True", which also goes by the name "Every Other Holiday", is one of those movies with all kinds of everything wrapped up in one. As such this story has some comedy as we have the family reunion which is filled with family tension, we have cute children who want their parents to get back together, as such we have some romance as old feelings resurface and of course some drama as beneath all these layers we have character issues, the truth behind the facade. So in a way "A Holiday Wish come True" is another movie which goes down "The Family Stone" route with plenty of drama, romance, and comedy, and in fairness it does a surprisingly good job of using the comedy and romance as only a layer on top of the drama. What that means is that as the movie plays out we learn more about the history and why Tracie's religious mother disapproves of Rick.
The trouble is that when it comes to the characters and how they are played the variety in "A Holiday Wish come True" is too much. As such Schuyler Fisk and David Clayton Rogers work so well as Tracie and Rick and you believe that there is a lot of love between them but other people have caused them issues through being disapproving. But then you have the likes of Dee Wallace who sadly over plays the religious and disapproving side to her character which makes her come across as being forced. Of course it is intentional as that is where part of the comedy comes from but at times it jars a little too much.

For the most part, the court will accept any schedule both parents choose so long as it is in the best interests of the children. Deciding which holidays your child spends with each parent takes some thought and planning, though.
Holidays are often an opportunity for kids to see family members they are not frequently around. They need to bond with these family members on both sides of their family. That is why they need to have the chance to spend the holidays with both parents.
Sharing and alternating holidays tend to be well-received by parents and children alike. They reduce stress, and they give the child more holiday time with each parent. However, children and parents often want to see each other on the day of the actual holiday. So, some parents decide to split the holidays. 041b061a72
