Well I would like to begin by saying that I have been a RN for about 5 and half years now and am 33 years old
with two young kids. I did complete a four year degree in healthcare prior to going to nursing school. The problem is that right now I am getting weary of floor nursing and want to advance my career, it looks as though I will have to either get my MBA or go to CRNA school to further advance my career to where I would like it to be. The problem is that I am a little timid to try to get into CRNA school -If I do get in I don't know how my family will get by without my income and If I don't apply I feel I will have squandered my opportunity. Another possibility is getting the MBA, but there are so many out of work MBA grads I don't if that would really be worth it in the years to come and make a difference in a person's career. I don't know really what to do, but would really appreciate your input and responses-thanks ahead of time.
