I've seriously been considering going back to school for nursing. I started a while ago but had to stop because of things going on in life at the time. I did finish some classes but don't have any type of degree. I unfortunately DO have about $28k in student loans.
I am currently 28 years old and working for about $40k/year and absolutely hate the job. If I go back for nursing, I know i would have to quit as I wouldn't be able to handle nursing school
and working full time as well. With this I would have to take out loans for living expenses such as rent a food. I've done the calculations and came to about $100k to acquire a BSN degree (this includes my current loan). I don't have any other debts besides my existing student loans ($28k).
Do any of you think this will be worth it, or is $100k in loans too much for a BSN . I know nursing is something that I would love and be able to pour myself into. I am currently living in Minneapolis so the market for nurses is pretty good, at least right now...
