[font=Georgia]Hi! I'm thinking about going to school to be a school nurse. I'm a 31 yr old stay at home mom of 2 girls, 4 & 6. My 4 yr old turns 5 this summer and will going to school next year, which would be the perfect time for me to start going to school.
[font=Georgia]Here is my thinking for this career path, and someone PLEASE tell me if I doing this for the right or wrong reasons. I always been interested in nursing but never wanted to spend the time going to school to pursue it. When I had children I definately didn't want to do that and miss out on any part of their lives. Now that they will both be in school next year, I could go to school when they are at school and be home for them in the afternoons which is perfect. Then, after schooling, being a school nurse would also be perfect because I'd work the same hours they are in school. Is my thinking right on here or am I missing something?
[font=Georgia]Also, I'm having trouble pushing myself foward after doing a little research. Here in the Dallas area, most school districts require a BSN, and I can't imagine going to school for 4 years or probably even longer in my case. Although I was an a student 13 years ago in high school, I hated studying and now that I don't HAVE to go to school, I'll have to MAKE myself go to school and do this work, and I don't know that I want this bad enough to do this.
[font=Georgia]Maybe I just need to focus on the good things this will bring instead of all the bad things, and just deal with it and move forward. Any words would be appreciated.
