I have a question? You are 19, How old is your husband?
Yes there are risks to being a nurse, but while you are in school you have some form of safety net in that the isnstructors teach you how to take the right steps in order to keep safe. Follow the guidelines for safety and if there is a teacher that you trust and can talk to about anything, talk to them about your worries and about your husband.
This is a time for you to learn to grow and mature, both in your relationship with your husband and for your own self worth. If husband keeps nagging you about school/working, tell him about all the benefits it can bring once you start working as a nurse.
Tell him to grow up and be a man, and stop acting like a spoiled little boy!
Sounds like he is acting out his own insecurities and trying to pass them on to you. Don't permit it!!! Nursing School
is stressful enough without his added s*#*. In my particular case, while I was in Nursing School, my husband was very supportive, both of my personal and vocational goals. When things started really getting hard, sometimes (not too often), I would get frustrated and say, "I can't do this!" My husband would contradict me, and tell me I could do anything I put my mind to do.:hatparty: He was no superhero or superhusband. He felt neglected from the lack of attention my schoolwork required. He told me often, but not cruelly or with malice. He was insecure, too. He also realized (with no prompting from me, I might add) that if I were happy, he would be happy. He helped me, when he could, with my schoolwork (especially beginning and maintaining good study habits and memory tips). I can definitely say that Nursing School would have been much harder without him. Remember, your husband is your partner (or should be). When you well in school, it reflects on him. You might help him to ask you study. Reassure him your nursing will only benefit you both, and that he's not being replaced or put aside. My case is a best-case-scenario. Prior to my schooling in Nursing, my husband had no interest in medicine (or any health-related field). I was very shortly surprised just how much information he had retained for himself by helping me study. He began to look into health-related studies and topics on his own. Side-note: THE HEALTH FIELD IS WHERE THE JOBS ARE AND WILL BE FOR AT LEAST THE NEXT FIFTY YEARS! The baby boomer generation is only getting older.
Feel free to email me, and put me on your buddy list, for support with your schooling and your husband. My husband taught me how to grow up. He's still trying to teach me how to spell (HA HA HA).
