I am married and have 3 kids and 1 on the way. I am 27 years old and don't really have a career going. The only schooling I have is a high school diploma. I have been looking into nursing as a career for the past 4-6 months and really am interested in going into this field. But I have a few concerns that i was hoping you guys can help me out.
As I stated above I have a family and currently I am the only on providing the income in our home.
As a sole provider would nursing be able to sustain a family of 6?
Also if I was to choose nursing there are different school options. As stated above I am 27 and soon to be a father of 4 so time isn't necessarily on my side. There is a privately owned school that gets you a asn in 18 months but is really expensive and full time meaning I would have to quit my day job and go there full time and try and work something out part time at nights. The other option is community college which is cheaper but is longer and will take about 3 years to complete for an asn.
What would you suggest would be the best route?
If I do choose the privately owned school and wanted to continue my education and possibly get my msn or crna are there other privately owned schools
that offer those kind of programs? (I hope this makes sense)
Anyways I hope I am not troubling anyone and certainly hope I did t bore anyone with this but am anxious at tbe same time. Any feedback would be appreciated.
