    it surprises me how quickly the posters are to judge this person. its her debt, not yours. its also funny to me how people are so quick to balk at 'student loan debt' as irresponsible--for what its worth that degree got her into a career with many pathways. people sign on the dotted line for six figure mortgages they cant afford but thats called 'home ownership' an 'investment' not 'debt' or irresponsibility.
    some people see education as investment and dont want to go the adn route necessarily. is that so wrong? dont flame me its just my 2cents

    i do see education as an investment however that doesn't justify making what i feel are irresponsible decisions by racking up debt and "don't want to go the adn route" is all well and good if you can afford to get your bsn and miss several years of rn work in the meantime. like you said it is her business except when she files for bankruptcy or whines about how rough her life is while driving that brand new car. sorry i can't muster much sympathy. fwiw i absolutely do think taking out a mortgage for a home you can't afford is irresponsible. part of growing up is making sacrifices.

    Plus some people cannot get into ADN programs. I know the ADN programs in my area have so many applicants, you are lucky to get in. I know people that have been trying to get into them for 5 and 6 yrs.
