    Median income in Illinois is reported to be 50,600. This is about what a new RN makes in the Chicago area, so a nurse in Chicago earns at more than at least half of the households in IL

    Im a nurse and my fiance is an engineer. We get by...we are not rich by any means. Don't expect to become a nurse and to "roll in the dough" because you won't. You WILL be bale to put food on the table, pay the bills and give your daugher what she needs. You daughter may not get a mercedes benz for her 16th birthday but you get the idea. You sound like you want to live a rich life style with everything so my suggestion to you is to forget the nursing idea and marry an NFL football player.

    When I worked as a CNA at a nursing home I had a decent apt, a car, and a generally 'good' lifestyle. I though that if I became an RN then I would take extravagant vacations, live in a big home, eat expensive meals...i.e. I though the RNs at the facility had it made.

    Now I certainly don't have a bad lifestyle and I am not a pauper. However, I realized that this grand lifestyle is not why I imagined. (NB: I don't regret my decision to become a nurse). Experience nurses are telling you this. They are telling you to be reasonable, to save your money, to realize that nursing is not an embarrassment of riches salary-wise.

    Everyone is trying to help you. Yet, you had the gall to call 'us people' rude??? People are trying to tell you how it is. People are trying to temper your expectations. People are trying to help you from making future mistakes. Well, quite frankly, given your allegation, I'm a little upset that I took the time to read this thread and thinking of helpful advice to offer to you.

    Well, good luck.

    Most people answered your question and gave some good advice, whether it was what you wanted to hear or not. If you can't take a little criticism you will never even survive nursing school.

    OP, when I read your last couple posts, I couldn't help but laughed.
    If you mean to communicate by writing, you have to write well. It shows how much you really value others' opinions here, and how serious your intention is. If you don't care about writing fine, than people sure won't take you seriously. The replies you got are more serious and much more respectful than the respect you ever showed here.

    By the way, get your nerves treated before you get into any of nursing stuff. Nursing school and the real world of nursing are 18432 times more frustrating than this. lol. You don't want to kill yourself or others from madness.

    If you want to see someone get rude and judgmental, I could give it a whirl. Consider me being 'polite' by stopping here.

    OP...we have nothing else with which to assess what a person "is all about" on forums such as this other than their written words. That's it, no gestures, no expressions, no other little nuance to add flavor to a message. With such limitations, it becomes very easy to "come off the wrong way".
    Text-speak and other overly casual communication styles regarding what most consider serious issues leads a reader to question the writer's veracity, maturity, intelligence, etc.
    It's a natural human response to try to fill in the blanks...therefore try not to leave so many.
