Hello hard working nurses out there! I am a mother of two (6 and 3), 30 years old and I've been working as a legal administrator junior for 9 years. Computer, typing, cases upon cases and temperamental lawyers I have to deal with everyday is softly killing me (mentally). I don't want to be sitting on my butt for the rest of my life, typing and making lawyers happy and still Junior while I can go out there and help people who are in need! I have enough and after years of putting nursing career off due to having kids and meeting our needs it has come to a point that this is the time to get out there and make a difference. Embarking on a journey upon a life changing career. My kids are my main motivation why I want to do it now. By the time I am 35 and before my eldest turn 10 I have completed my nursing studies and yes I will study hard and yes I have done my maths...Are there nurses out there who are on the same boat as. Me? How did you manage to pull through financial difficulties...family commitments...did you ever do part time work to meet the needs? My partner works full time and I'm pretty sure government pays you an allowance to keep you going. Please any successful stories out there? Would love to hear from you!
