I just emailed the dean of the school informing her that I'm dropping my program. Don't get me wrong: the program is great. It's rigorous, fast paced, and I had been doing well in my studies. I just psychologically could not handle not being able to work as much as I was before I started school and therefore not making as much money as I was before. I have never been without a job (often two or three at the same time) and look forward to working my butt off to make up for lost time. I've also realized being an RN is not all it's cracked up to be (just look at all the rants on job dissatisfaction on this site). I'm pretty satisfied with my decision and trying to be content with the fact that I'll be an LPN forever. I'm single with no kids so I can support myself well financially. Relief is the word that comes to mind to sum this whole experience up. Can't wait to get back to my pre-RN school life!
Have you tried an online program or one where you are able to go part time?
OMG I just saw update.
I'm so glad you're sticking with it! You won't regret it in the future!
