Moving out of town or state to start nursing school?

  1. I'd like to hear from those who are moving on to this new experience. I'm moving away from family and all that's familiar to get my RN. Anyone else?

    Me too! Fortunately, I didn't have to move out of state, just to the other end of Colorado.

    I'm hoping too! I've applied to an out-of-state school, but don't know if I'll be accepted yet.

    I moved b/c my husband is military, not b/c of school. I started classes immediately, like within 2 weeks of arriving. It worked out great. It allowed me to be around other people and not dwell so much on being by myself. I just finished Micro and some of the people in my class are also moving on to the RN program too. I think it'll help to have a few familiar faces even if we aren't exactly "friends". The only support I have is my husband. We are no where near family. And even though I have him, I also have 3 little kids. I want this so bad I don't think anything can stop me at this point! Good luck in your new location!

    My situation is slightly different. I moved from California to Texas right after completing LVN school. I am my only support system right now, since I am nowhere near family.

    Yeah, I'm moving to the other side of TN.
