    nursing is definitely one of the best careers out there. it offers financial stability, flexibility and an exceptionally wide range of opportunities in the u.s. however, truth to tell, it's a physically and emotionally demanding job. you can't excuse a lousy day for underperforming because you can always commit a fatal error if you do (sucks the hell..if only room upgrades can patch up errors in this field...:trout: .).... it's important that you have a long and hard look at your life now and ask yourself how willing are you to give up the comforts you have now to start anew (pretty scary but darn exciting, too). what about your family plans...a baby is always a welcome addition to your life but if you plan to go to nursing school, it's no question that the little bundle would need your attention...

    all i'm saying is there's a great deal of change you will have to go through from where you are now to become a nurse. you've got determine if you are ready for that change and plan everything carefully with your husband. it's got to be one of the most challenging decisions you'll make in your life... God bless you.

    I suggest that you study nursing in English exempt countries like USA, UK, etc...It will free you from hassles like English exams, or in the case of US schools, free from educational comparison.


    May I ask, in what airline company are you working(for) right now?

    By the way, I applied to be an FA sometime last year(last quarter), but unfortunately, I wasn't accepted by two airline companies where I applied at.
