I have a question and hope I can get some good feedback from this thread. Here's the deal-
My husband (of almost 23 years) decided he thought it would be a good idea to divorce during my first semester of Nursing School. (Can you say sabotage?!?) It was 6 weeks into the Fall12 Semester- so he let me take out the student loans and all the financial aid and then dropped the bomb. I was not able to stay in the home or in school or even in the state. I moved from Georgia to Texas where I have family. I was able to medically withdraw since I was hospitalized. So I am in good standing at my school. I am a Phi Theta Kappa member. And had A's at the mid-term if this makes any difference. I can probably get recommendations from my Profs at school. Also, I have my A.S. Pre-Nursing.
I guess my questions for you would be:
* Financially it will be a struggle but am wondering if I should get my LVN/RN or go for my BSN. I hate to have to give up. I have worked so hard to make it where I was. It would be next fall I could get in to a BSN Program (UGH!!), and I could start earlier for a training program.
* Also, the entrance testing and prerequisites are different in Texas- TEAS vs. HESI2 and most schools require Chemistry as well as Texas History which would set me back to.
* I could always buckle down and go back to Georgia. I was happy with my school and loved living in Georgia, but I hate to move my kids again and don't want to be that close to my ex if I can avoid it. Also, my overhead is low in TX and I have more support here than I would have there.
I just feel like my education and life is totally down the drain. I could really use some insight. I have a lot of choices to make and I keep running in circles. I am so frustrated! So if anyone can help me brainstorm through this I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
