[QUOTE=nursemike?]If I had known what I was getting into, I might not have gotten into it! It is hard, especially if you have to juggle other commitments. But it is worth it, too. Based on myself and many of my classmates, you'll probably feel like giving up, at some point. But once you get through that, it's great******************************
I agree with this .. if I had known what I was getting into I would not have done it.
It is a strange dichotomy . . . I would not have chosen to go to nursing school but am glad I am a nurse and have a way to make a living.
It was very difficult, I did not work full-time or even part-time while in school except for the occasional day in a local doc's office.
My kids were all in school full-time then. I have a three year old now. I know I couldn't do it - I feel guilty enough when he asks me the night before I work "mommy do you work tomorrow?"
I only work part-time but it is still difficult. Working full-time and going to school full-time would be really hard on him and me.
If you don't have the full support of your husband, if he is having second thoughts, you need to have a heart to heart with him. He isn't being a bad husband, this is hard on him too.
Of course he is right in a way . . .we should all have done this before we got married and had kids.
But, like Tweety said, you play the hand you are dealt.
Good luck and best wishes,
