I REALLY LOVE TX, but....

  1. I am at a cross roads. I have a teenage daughter in PA, I feel guilty and sad that I chose to miss so many years with her. I have been living primarily in TX for the past (7) years, I really like the culture here, for the most part. I love the diversity of cultures, Asian, American, Mexican, Eastern European, etc. I really love TX, but I got accepted to the ADN program in PA first. My teenage daughter would be heart-broken , if I don't come home to PA to be with her for her last year of high school. She really needs her mother's arms around her, and not the Sprint telephone in her ear, and I really need her too. Futhermore, I don't really know how to evaluate one nursing program vs. another. I am somewhat familiar with hospitals in both cities. What would you do???

    DITTO. Of course I don't know your situation, but IMO there is really no decision to make.

    :hatparty: I would most defininitely go to the Pa. program. You will get your education plus your daughter would have her mom and you will have her. 2 precious gifts for the price of one. May God bless you! Traci in West Texas
