"Even many DNP's don't make $100,000"
I think you're right, and that scares me. I can't imagine going to Yale or Fairfield, busting my b*lls, & spending that kinda tuition to make about the same amount as I do now.
"It's not very family-friendly I'm afraid."
Oh well. Your life/career sounds amazing. Yet another reason why I wish I did this nursing thing a decade or so ago. The wife'n'kids, the path that took me here - all great, whatever. But to be a young single male in nursing school
, and then be able to take advantage of a lifestyle/professional opportunity like the one you mention ... like I said, oh well.
"I'd really like to know what kind of nurses make that money!"
That's the thing, it doesn't exist. I guess what I'm asking is how I can make money with a nursing degree as opposed to being a nurse? Does that make sense?
I really appreciate the input. Maybe I'll just work 3 jobs & forget about seeing my family altogether. I'm always irritable anyways, they'll be fine. The reason I became a nurse at all was so that I could be around. Part of me realizes that this is truly my calling and that everything will work out; so whatever, relax. Also, I should probably just put a girl in my wife so she could get a tubal ligation.
Did I mention the part about not being married in nursing school in my next life? I kinda did, nevermind.
