I've been teaching for 7 years and I absolutely hate it. I've taught a few different grades and still achieve the same result, unhappiness. I've been considering nursing for about 5 years now but I don't know if I can do it realistically. I have 3 boys 4, 10, and 12 and am pregnant with number 4. I won't be going back to work because I dread the thought of teaching again. Is it realistic to go to nursing school with all that's going on in my life. My boys are wonderful and I get a lot of help at home. I'll be taking my pre-reks now and won't start the program until the baby's about 1 or 2. I'll be 34. Am I nuts for wanting to pursue this at this point in my life?
