    I really admire how you took everyone's feedback (even though we all basically said don't do the thing you want to do) and considered it. That isn't a skill everyone has, and it is the kind of thing that can help you reach all your goals. I wish the best for you on your journey to becoming a nurse!
    I agree! Regardless of what you decide, that shows a great degree of maturity and adaptability, which will certainly benefit you regardless of where you end up (as opposed to the 90% of anonymous internet posters who would have said 'I'm being bullied, you're all so rude and jaded, nurses eat their young, I wouldn't want you as my nurse.' )

    I agree for the most part with the prior posters. Given the cost of the program, be extra careful to ensure that it's legit (and that you're not being taken advantage of by a for-profit unaccredited school). You may find that putting in the extra time to earn the ADN/RN will open more doors and give you more bang for your buck (or in your case, a better return on the investment of your time and hard work). However, it's totally fine if the LPN will work better for your life circumstances.

    Also, thank you for your service to our country!!! Best of luck with whatever you decide.

    I agree with previous posters, for $28k I would much rather look into using a GI bill on an ADN program instead. In the long run it will be worth it.
