I have loved PN school very much and done well despite the fact I have a hubby and 3 kids at home. But at this point, as much as I like it, I am ready to be out of school for a while. Heck, I will probably not even become an RN. The difference is not that important to me and I don't care about the money issue. Just don't tell my husband I said that He's got my whole career earnings spent in his mind, like I will single-handedly make us rich now that I am marketable! What a goober but I love him. Thanks again!
Oh Jill, do I know how you feel! I too love school but will be jumping with joy when I walk across that stage! I am married with 3 children as well and this is my fourth and final year. I went part time the whole way through so that I would always be here for the kids and be able to go to every soccer game and baseball game etc.. I don't regret doing it this way, and I have all my course work completed for my bachelors degree, but I am not sure when that will ever get finished.
Oh, and about the hubby, I think that yours and mine are brothers! He is always reminding me about what we will be able to afford in the future.....If we bought every single thing that he has casually mentioned over the last 4 years, I will have to work 70 hours a week until retirement. (I'm 31 now!!!)
Yeah...goobers, but the very best kind!
(((hugs to you)))) and good luck with whatever you decide!!
