    I'm in my early 40's, a mother of two boys ages 9 and 12 and just applied for JJC's program in the Fall. Any advice or anything you can say that'll help keep me motivated would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    I'm presently grossing $5,000 per week with OT... motivation enough for me.

    For the most part, I enjoy my job... and most of my colleagues and a fair number of my patients.

    I've done many different things in my life and this is the best of the lot.

    Wow whenever I get frustrated and feel like giving up ill remember the $5,000 a week. If you don't mind me asking what field of nursing are you in and how much experience do you have because that's amazing $$

    I work substantial amounts of OT, and nights, and every premium holiday, to draw that cash - it's not something which I'll be able to sustain for the long term. Still, $55-$60 per hour is pretty common for experienced nurses in these parts.

    We get paid well for what we do... and we earn every penny of it.

    ^ enjoying the job makes it worthwhile...I agree with that!

    Well I don't know...I've actually thought of quitting-Friday as a matter of fact-it's not the school work or the studying that gets me....it's some of the students and some of the teachers....it's like high school all over again.

    Working in a hospital while going to school motivated me; they all knew what I was in school for and there was no way I was going to drop the ball and not get through it lol

    Also, being able to provide for my family; both of my parents lost their jobs during the last economy downfall and there was no way they would be able to support themselves on such a reduced income via benefits. My income jumped $27000 gross once I finished school and completed my first full year of nursing.

    I was previously in a job that didn't have too many opportunities to move upwards. I wanted something more than just a "job" and something that offered plenty of learning opportunities and room for growth

    I have a girl I used to work with and I tell myself over and over, "If SHE can do, I can do it!!"
    Yep. Every time I want to quit I just look around my classroom and think I'm sorry, but if they can, then I SURELY can as well.
