The marriage is in a shambles as it is, if I lay out a semester or two it won't be to work on my marriage. I've had it after tonight, he's so mean I can't take it anymore.
So, that settles that. It's been a long time coming.
I don't hate nursing. I wanted to go into FNP but the school I am is strict about work experience and I didn't have enough experience working with children so I'm in the Adult/Gero NP track. Ideally, I would like to run a small rural clinic focusing on palliative care for older adults, maybe do home visits, kind of like hospice. I want to focus on education on determining when it is time to look toward end-of-life care options (way too many people, especially in rural areas, continue conventional treatment long past the point it will be of any benefit). Anyway, that is my long-term goal at this point.
If I had time to do something fun, I would love to get a certificate in Swedish massage and be able to integrate that into my practice. But I've got to keep my nose to the grindstone. Bills to pay. I'm lucky as it is to get the money to pay for school through subsidized loans. I don't want to do anything to blow it.
Well, I guess a little TMI. But I believe I have a better idea of what direction to take now. Thank you for all the replies.
