Oh, Calzo, if you hate nursing (and I certainly hate many aspects of it myself), you really may want to consider doing something else entirely! It is totally NOT too late to do that. There are so many online possibilities that you can work at your own pace to get a degree in something else while keeping your regular paycheck for now.
Look into CLEP exams, a great way to get college credit cheaper and faster and be able to apply those to the degree you want. (Read policies carefully, not all colleges accept them, but most do.)
A friend told me about her dad who wanted to be a lawyer when he was 20. Not enough money, had to be working, etc. so he didn't. When he was 30, he wanted to be a lawyer, but was married, had kids, etc. so he didn't. When he was 40, he wanted to be a lawyer, but had kids starting college, bills, etc. so he didn't. At 50, he wanted to be a lawyer, but had almost all of his 10 kids in college ('nuf said on that kind of expense!), so he didn't. When he was 60.... he went to college and did, indeed, become a lawyer.
So my question to you is what she asked me... In 10 yrs, how old will you be if you DON'T do what you wanted to?
