I am 33 and want to change my career to nursing because that is what I always wanted to do but let myself get stuck in a job for 10 years because it paid me so well but made me miserable. I am going to take as many classes as I can on nights and weekends but how do you afford to pay your bills when you need to focus on school more and work less? I have a lot of bills and am trying to pay off my credit card debt but I will still have a car payment, insurance, gas, internet and cell phone bill to pay plus food and necessities. Also how do people pay their bills when in nursing school when it is a full time thing? Looking for any advice I can get before I make this change!
